Opportunities to Contribute
The Clinical Core of the Cornell ME/CFS Center at Ithaca College is recruiting healthy individuals and individuals with ME/CFS to participate in cardiopulmonary exercise tests.
As part of the Cornell ME/CFS Center, Weill Cornell Medicine aims to collect brain images from individuals with ME/CFS and healthy individuals to study oxidative stress and neuroinflammation, before and after an exercise challenge.
The Bateman Horne Center is actively recruiting individuals with ME/CFS and healthy controls to provide biological samples and clinical information. The Bateman Horne Center will share these data with multiple research groups searching for biomarkers for ME/CFS, including the Jackson Laboratory ME/CFS Center.
This study aims to assess the impact of exercise on the microbiome, the metabolome, the proteome, and the epigenome. Study participants, healthy individuals and individuals with ME/CFS, will undergo a supervised ETT with questionnaire, blood, stool, and saliva collections before and after testing at Columbia University.
This study will also recruit healthy individuals and individuals with ME/CFs at Stanford University. Details will be provided when available.
