The Invest in ME Research Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium 9 (#BRMEC9) will take place in London over two days from 29th - 30th May 2018.
The ninth Colloquium aims to increase international collaboration in research into ME.
We again hope to have representation from most of the main biomedical research initiatives now occurring throughout the world and also participation fron USA's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). We supplement this with expertise from outside the field of ME to enable more opportunities to be established to further research.
The Invest in ME Research Colloquiums have spawned a number of positive initiatives over the years and are the most successful research meetings for forming new research initiatives for ME with multiple collaborative initiatives being formed across continents.
The research Colloquium in London will precede the IIMEC14 annual public international biomedical research conference on 31st May 2019. The conference is a full day event from 09.00 to 17.30.
The agenda section below will contain the conference schedule.
Participation in BRMEC* Events
If you are a biomedical researcher and are interested in attending the BRMEC* Colloquiums then please use our contact form to discuss this.
Attendance is by invitation only and decided by the charity based on progressing our goals of encouraging international collaboration in investigating this disease leading to discovery of aetiology and/or deveoplemnt of effective treatments.
We also invite participation from outside the field of ME where it may assist existing researchers.

BRMEC9 Conference Agenda 2019
Conference-day registration will be possible from 7.30 and the Colloquium begins at 08.55 on Wednesday 29st May 2019.
Please note: Times and presentations are subject to change and Invest in ME Research accept no responsibility for cancellations, changes to presentations, changes to sequences of presentations or for the timings.
The agenda is being developed and will be updated here when ready.
Our Past Colloquiums
Invest in ME Research has been organising the Biomedical Research into ME Colloquiums since 2011.
- always in the heart of London.
The Colloquiums are closed research meetings which provide a forum for international researchers to discuss research data, share knowledge and develop ideas around biomedical research into ME. These Colloquiums in London now regularly attract researchers from fifteen countries and contribute to progress in research into ME.
Past Colloquiums can be seen via the link below.
Invest in ME Research Activity - Mainstreaming Research into ME
The charity does not only arrange and host research Colloquiums and Conferences.
Use our website references in the links below to view other work performed by Invest in ME Research.
IIMER are facilitating a strategy of biomedical research into ME.
The charity is currently funding possibly important research projects for ME in the UK with international collaboration.
Currently the main hub of research is at Quadram Institute Bioscience and University of East Anglia ) in the Norwich Research Park and we also fund research at UCL. These involve a gut microbiota project in Norwich and B cell research in London.
The IIMER Advisory Board is made up of eminent researchers who are helping the charity to form a credible and productive biomedical research strategy which will provide the best and quickest route for possible treatments and cures for this disease.
Centre of Excellence for ME
Translational biomedical research - an iterative feedback of information between the basic and clinical research domains in order to accelerate knowledge translation from lab to bedside and back to lab again - allows translation of findings in basic research more quickly and efficiently into medical practice to produce more meaningful health outcomes and facilitate the sharing of repositories and research-based facilities and laboratories. This is the model IiMER are attempting to promote in the proposal for an examination and research facility based in Norwich.
Let's Do It For ME
Let's do it for ME! is a patient-driven campaign to raise awareness and vital funds for a UK centre of excellence for translational biomedical ME research, clinical assessment, diagnosis and treatment for patients, training and information for healthcare staff, based around the Norwich Research Park in the UK and aiming to work collaboratively with international biomedical researchers.
In addition to the International ME Conference the charity also organises an annual International Research Colloquium which attracts researchers from around the world in order to discuss experiences and open up collaborations in order to find answers for this disease.
Invest in ME Research is one of the founder members of the European ME Alliance (EMEA) – a grouping of charities and patient organisations working together across Europe. Now fifteen European countries collaborating.
