A New Decade of Conferences Begins - A New Conference Venue



For TEN years Invest in ME (Research) have been organising international biomedical research conferences in London at Birdcage Walk.
This venue has been almost a spiritual home for IiME conferences.

Now, as we announce the dates for the conference as 3rd of June 2016 we also announce a new venue which will hopefully be easier for patients, better for sponsors and more productive for networking between researchers, clinicians, patient group representatives, the media and patients and carers - something all Invest in ME conferences have achieved as a consequence of our strategy for better education about ME.

The new venue is, however, just off Birdcage Walk - so it is just as close to parliament as our previous venue.

One Great George Street is the location for IIMEC11 2016 - Google map click here.

This venue will have the refreshment area on the same floor as the lecture theatre - making it easier for all to network and attend presentations.

The venue also claims to be the most accessible historic conference venue in Westminster and is proud of its accessibility awards.

We hope the new venue will help all delegates enjoy the conference even more than in the past.
More details will be provided over the next month.



BRMEC6 Research Colloquium - 1st - 2nd June 2016

Preceding the conference Invest in ME will be holding its sixth international Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium - BRMEC6 - where we again invite researchers from around the world to join us in collaboration.

We hope that the EMERG group will play a significant part in the colloquium as we continue to build the foundation of international biomedical research into ME.

More details of the colloquiums will be found here.
