HQ Location:

Location of benefit: 
UK only (nationwide)

We are an independent UK charity campaigning for bio-medical research into
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), as defined by WHO-ICD-10-G93.3.
We have links nationwide and also internationally. Invest in ME are one of
the founding members of  The European ME Alliance.

Our aim is to bring together like-minded individuals and groups to campaign
for research and funding to establish an understanding of the Aetiology
(causes), Pathogenesis (harmful effects) and Epidemiology (the pattern of
distribution of a disease through a population) of M.E. This should lead to
the development of a universal "thumb-print" test for diagnosis of M.E. and,
subsequently, medical treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the
illness.

Invest in ME want to establish a national strategy of biomedical research
into M.E.
