NIH Director’s Blog Highlights JAX and Columbia Research


The NIH Director’s Blog this week is featuring two recent studies on the microbiome in ME/CFS, including our study plus a study by W. Ian Lipkin’s group from Columbia University, which were both just published in the latest issue of the journal Cell Host & Microbe on February 8, 2023. The studies were funded in part by NIH’s ME/CFS Collaborative Research Network, a consortium supported by multiple institutes and centers at NIH, consisting of three collaborative research centers and a data management coordinating center.

In the blog post, NIH Director Lawrence A. Tabak, D.D.S., Ph.D. explains the importance of this new research, as well as delving into the findings of the two studies in detail. He explains that it is important to see a more collaborative approach to ME/CFS research, as the hope in supporting the Research Network was to cut through the complexity of this disease and help the millions of people suffering from ME/CFS.
