The ME Research UK is a non-profit organization whose principal aim is to commission and fund scientific investigation into the causes, consequences and treatment of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (also known as ME/CFS). This syndrome is a debilitating illness characterized by excessive fatigue that does not respond to bed rest. It affects around 1 million people in the USA, and 200,000 people in the UK, but is not well understood nor, in many cases, properly recognized. The charity also has a mission to "Energize ME Research", which involves raising awareness of the need for biomedical research into ME/CFS globally, providing high quality information on all aspects the of illness for a wide range of audiences, and hosting conferences on ME/CFS biomedical research.
