Please Note: No research studies are recruiting at this time (March 2019)
Most of the research studies and clinical trials that we fund through the Ramsay Research Fund, or are being funded by other research funding organisations such as the Medical Research Council, make use of people with ME/CFS who are already attending clinics within the hospital they belong to, or a hospital that they have links with.
There are, however, occasions where the ME Association is asked to help find research volunteers. When this occurs we make an announcement on our website and in ME Essential – our members magazine – and on our social media platforms.
Please note that inclusion of a study does not necessarily mean ME Association endorsement or funding support.
The ME Association
Ramsay Research Fund
We are a national charity working hard to make the UK a better place for people whose lives have been devastated by an often-misunderstood neurological disease. And we believe biomedical research offers the best hope to people affected by M.E.
If you would like to support our investment then please donate to the Ramsay Research Fund. Just click the image opposite to visit our JustGiving page for single donations, to establish a regular payment or to begin fundraising.
