together like-minded individuals and groups to campaign for research and funding
to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and Epidemiology of ME This should lead to the development of a universal

establish a national strategy of biomedical research into ME.
The charity is currently
involved in the establishment of an examination and research facility for ME in

the UK which would be dedicated to correct examining and diagnosing people with
ME and performing state-of-the-art biomedical research into ME.
