International Research Collaboration for ME

New Speakers to IiMER's Biomedical Research into ME Colloquium

At this year's Colloquium we welcome the return of the Dr Oystein Fluge and Professor Olav Mella to the Colloquium. This year we will also have Kari Sorland and Dr Ingrid Rekeland participating. Kari and Ingrid joined Oystein recently in the visit by the Norwegian Haukeland University Hospital team to Norwich (click here). Professor Karl Johan Tronstad

We are delighted to announce that, along with the Norwegian Haukeland team, we have invited Professor Karl Johan Tronstad also to the Colloquium. Karl was involved with the recent paper to come from Bergen - Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight.

The Tronstad Lab investigates cell metabolism and mitochondrial biology and we are very fortunate that he can spare time to participate in the Colloquium.

We are also extremely pleased that our invitation to the Yenan Bryceson group at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has been accepted. The Bryceson Group studies subsets of lymphocytes, such as cytotoxic T cells and natural killer (NK) cells. Jakob Theorell

Their laboratory is based at the Center for Infectious Medicine and employs a wide range of techniques including multiparameter flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, live-cell imaging, next-generation sequencing, and biochemical techniques.

Jakob Theorell is currently enrolled in the MD-PhD Program at Karolinska Institutet.
His work focuses on understanding the mechanisms of disease in patients suffering from chronic immunodeficiency syndromes.

Jakob will be talking about recent ME research carried out by the group.

We have already invited researchers from thirteen countries to the Colloquium and as we build the program we are seeking to maximise collaboration and research possibilities and to establish good cooperation between the international institutes that we have invited.
