Quadram Institute

Speaker: Professor Simon Carding

You are invited to a public meeting to learn about our research programme into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

You are invited to a public meeting to learn about our research programme into myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). The Quadram Institute on the Norwich Research Park has an established research programme into ME, investigating its links with the population of trillions of bacteria, viruses and fungi that colonise the gut.

This will also be a chance to find out about a planned clinical trial into a new form of treatment that targets gut microbes for ME. The charity Invest in ME Research have pledged £500,000 to fund a clinical trial testing the use of Faecal Microbiota Transplantation (FMT) to treat ME, and the research team want to gather your opinions to inform the design of the trial and interest in being part of the trial. The project team includes the University of East Anglia (UEA), the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) and East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH), and members of the team will be talking about their roles in the new trial.

The event is being held in the Quadram Institute on Friday 7th February, 12:30pm to 3pm. Lunch will be provided.

Attendance is free but places must be reserved. BOOK HERE
