Post COVID-19 to ME/CFS Research Study:

The current COVID-19 pandemic offers an unprecedented opportunity to understand how a viral infection may convert to ME/CFS in some patients. The five ME/CFS Collaborative Centers have begun a unique, extensive, in-depth longitudinal molecular study following COVID-19 patients to determine the pathways involved in the maintenance of long-term symptoms in some patients, possibly converting to ME/CFS. They seek to learn about these pathways to develop biomarkers, novel drug targets, and new treatment and prevention strategies.
