We are so excited to announce we have partnered with Open Medicine Foundation (OMF) to launch an international research centre for ME/CFS right here in Australia!

This new partnership means that we can now directly fund absolutely vital research to help more than 250,000 Australians living with ME/CFS through our new Help Cure ME campaign.

The new centre for biomedical research will be headed by our very own Dr Chris Armstrong, a leading researcher into ME/CFS, and his team.

"I am thrilled that OMF has decided to expand its global ME/CFS research network to Australia,” Dr Armstrong said. “This will be the fifth Collaborative Research Centre in this network and I am absolutely honoured to be the director."

Dr Armstrong has a background in metabolomics and has been working for Stanford as a visiting researcher in Dr Ronald Davis’s laboratory for the last 18 months. His specialty in research will remain focused on metabolomics deeply getting to know the biology of patients with a view to finding effective treatments.

The centre joins other worldwide OMF centres at Stanford University, Harvard University, Uppsala University and Université de Montréal in researching and finding a cure for ME/CFS.

As the national organisation providing information, support and advocacy for Australians living with ME/CFS, we are so excited to see the outcomes of the research developed at this new collaborative centre and will be keeping our community informed of progress along the way.
