Ang. konkurransen om å bli "NIH Research center for ME/CFS" (USA)

NIH vil i september peke ut tre "vinnere" som får status som offisielle sentre for ME-forskning i USA. 10 søknader har kommet inn, og det er tunge fagmiljøer blant søkerne. Noen er gamle kjente, men det er også ganske nye søkere. Det blir knallhard konkurranse om de tre plassene :)

Each application contains a major group and it’s collaborators.

The grapevine suggests the identities of eight of the applicants and some of their collaborators appear to be:

The Center for Enervating Neuroimmune Disease (Cornell) – Maureen Hanson + Dikomo Shungu + Sue Levine + the Workwell Foundation + Betsy Keller and ?

The Center for Infection and Immunity – Ian Lipkin (+ Simmaron?) + ?

The Genome Technology Center at Stanford – Ron Davis + Bob Naviaux + the Bateman-Horne Center

Institute For Neuroimmune Medicine – Klimas, Broderick, Crawford, Rey and Vera + Shungu + ?

Lenny Jason at DePaul University + the Ben Katz + ?

The Nevada Center for Biomedical Research – Vincent Lombardi + De Meirleir + (probably Arizona State University)

Pain and Fatigue Study Center – Benjamin Natelson + Dane Cook + Jarred Younger (or is Cook the principal?)
Stanford Chronic Fatigue Initiative – Jose Montoya + Emory University + Jarred Younger

Just added – The Jackson Laboratory (Connecticut) – Derya Unutmaz and the Bateman Horne Center –
?
The competition just stiffened. Ten research groups applied for the three NIH research center grants. We’re pretty sure about eight of them and just learned the identity of the ninth.
