New research network will bolster our understanding of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


European Network on ME/CFS
 

"Assistant Professor of Economics at Trinity, Dominic Trépel, has been appointed Ireland’s representative on a newly established research network, which seeks to improve our understanding of the economic consequences and social impact of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)).

The condition significantly reduces quality of life for those affected by it and, if left unaddressed, may have significant economic implications to individuals and to wider society. There are substantial gaps in our knowledge of the impact of this complex disease, but the new ‘European Network on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (EUROMENE)’ mission is to address these.

The network will establish an inter-connected group of researchers working on ME/CFS and is built on the principles of multidisciplinarity, ensuring the: involvement of patients and other stakeholders; strategic coordination with multiple stakeholders; attraction of early career investigators; involvement of COST countries and Near Neighbour Countries; fostering of international cooperation.

The principal objective is to create an integrated network of researchers in the European Union/Associated and Near Neighbour Countries accompanied by a network of facilities and associated training establishments. It will also foster a full chain of translational research to further develop much-needed treatments and prevention strategies for the improvement of patients’ quality of life."

Unrest Review

My brother Stuart and I went to our local screening of Unrest recently, an award-winning documentary film about Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

Jennifer Brea is about to marry the love of her life when she’s struck down by a fever that leaves her bedridden. When doctors tell her “it’s all in her head”, she turns her camera on herself and her community as she looks for answers and fights for a cure.

Although it was emotionally challenging to watch, we are pleased to share our views on this groundbreaking film with you.
