On August 21st, 2020, the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University is hosting the 2020 International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephelomyelitis (IACFS/ME) virtual research conference. The conference, which is targeted towards biomedical and behavioral professionals, will focus on biomedical, public health, and behavioral aspects of ME/CFS and associated comorbidities. A portion of the meeting will also be devoted to COVID-19 and its relevance to ME/CFS research and clinical care. Continuing medical education credits for physicians and nurses will be provided.

The presenters will cover a wide variety of topics relevant to ME/CFS, including how immunological, autonomic, and metabolic dysfunction contribute to the pathophysiology of ME/CFS and might serve as biomarkers, how integrated, cross-disciplinary, and international research/clinical networks might accelerate clinical and scientific progress, and will discuss insights from patients developing ME/CFS after COVID-19 infection.

The Zoom-style meeting will run from 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM EDT, and will be recorded so people unable to attend live may watch it afterwards.
