aBOUT 'iNVEST iN me'
Invest in ME (IiME) is a registered charity (1114035) run enitrely by volunteers set up with the objectives of making a change in how ME (Myalgic Encephalomyeletis) is perceived and treated in the media, by health departments and by healthcare professionals.
They aim to do this by funding for biomedical research, education and lobbying. Invest in ME aims to collaborate and coordinate events and activities in these areas in order to provide the focus and funding to allow biomedical research to be carried out.
Their aim is to bring together like-minded individuals and groups to campaign for research and funding to establish an understanding of the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME. They hope that this will lead to the development of a universal diagnostic test that can confirm the presence of ME and, subsequently, medical treatments to cure or alleviate the effects of the illness
