Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) Meeting Transcripts


The first Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) meeting of 2018 was hosted by the US Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) on June 20th and 21st, 2018. The meeting was set in a webinar format, and the audio from the webinar was recorded and later transcribed, and is now available to the public.

The purpose of CFSAC is to find ways to improve knowledge, research, and treatment of ME/CFS, and find strategies to inform the public about ME/CFS advances. The two-day meeting, which included updates from government agencies, clinicians, researchers, and advocacy organizations, covered recent topics and news surrounding ME/CFS, and participants discussed relevant issues and important next steps for this disease.

Derya Unutmaz, our ME/CFS CRC director at Jackson Labs, was one of the webinar presenters. He gave an overview and background of the research focus here. He also presented updates on science and our community outreach efforts.
