IIMEC9

This annual international, CPD accredited research conference provides a platform for the latest and most promising biomedical research into ME. IIMEC9 will be the ninth conference and now attracts researchers, clinicians, doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, healthcare professionals and patient groups from fifteen countries from around the world.
The conference is a full day event from 09.00 to 17.30. An agenda page contains the schedule.

Why Attend

With increasing research evidence of immune dysfunction in ME patients and with the MRC stating that there is evidence supporting the view that inflammatory mechanisms in the brain and spinal cord may underlie the pathophysiology of some severe disease ME phenotypes then now is the time to hear of the research coming together to benefit patients and doctors.
The conference provides an opportunity to learn of the current status of diagnosis, treatment and current/future biomedical research being performed or planned and provides education and experience on the aetiology, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME.

Conference Agenda

Our conference theme is Synergising Research into ME

Synergy "1. The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects. 2. Cooperative interaction among groups...... that creates an enhanced combined effect."

We will have international researchers and clinicians discussing current and planned research into ME. With our conferences and our full day research meeting on the day before the conference we bring together different aspects of researching this disease in the hope that combining ideas and experiences of biomedical research into ME and collaborating in future research we will enhance education and effectiveness of research efforts.

Sponsored Profs

We have a scheme whereby healthcare professionals may take advantage of discounted rates if connnected to a local ME group.

This is to encourage cooperation between patients and healthcare staff. CPD points are available to these "sponsored" healthcare professionals as they are to the professional category.

 If any local ME patient group wishes to take advantage of this scheme (it costs the group nothing) then please Contact Us or go directly to the Register page to obtain ticket(s).

Who Are We

We are an independent UK charity (Charity Nr. 1114035) campaigning for bio-medical research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), 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, pathogenesis and epidemiology of ME.

Invest in ME wish to establish a national strategy of biomedical research into ME and establish a UK/European Centre of Excellence for translational biomedical research into ME.

Conference Events

The charity also organises and hosts an international research meeting prior to the conference. This brings together many different researchers and clinicans from around the world and underlines our theme for the conference - Synergising Research into ME.

The charity also hosts a pre-conference dinner and we endeavour to have a speaker presenting information and views on a relevant topic.
