L’Open Medicine Foundation a récemment annoncé la création d’un centre de recherche collaborative sur l’EM/SFC à l’université de Stanford, financé à hauteur de 1,2 millions de dollars par la fondation. Le centre, dirigé par Ron Davis, hébergera plusieurs projets de recherche, et une équipe de 31 scientifiques parmi lesquels on compte Robert Naviaux et Lucinda Bateman.
L’annonce cite 3 projets de recherche :
- Cellules T et l’immunologie moléculaire de l’encéphalomyélite myalgique / syndrome de fatigue chronique
Séquencement de cellules T pour découvrir leurs cibles
- Etude big data étendue sur les familles
Séquencement génomique, expression des gènes, métabolomique, cytokines, bilan clinique, et plus
- Développer des test de diagnostic sanguins et des technologies d’évaluation de traitements
Permettre un diagnostic rapide et peu onéreux de l’EM/SFC et découvrir de nouveaux traitements
