Medical Professionals: Association Grants
The first program funded by the Association was its research grant program. Since 1987 the Association has provided nearly $5 million in direct support of CFS research studies, has hosted scientific symposia and has cosponsored meetings to identify promising areas of investigation. To meet the unequivocal need for a more robust scientific enterprise for CFS, in late 2007 the CFIDS Association’s Board of Directors announced the Campaign to Accelerate CFS Research to fuel a more intensive search for biomarkers, better diagnostics and more effective treatments.
The current purpose of the CFIDS Association’s research program is to accelerate progress toward accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of CFS by directly supporting research studies, facilitating collaboration among investigators and pursuing increased investment in CFS research by public, private and commercial institutions.
