    Hey everyone!

    Lookie here!
    A rare case of parity for ME research and other research.
    We got just as many RFA’s as everyone else this past week.

    It goes without saying though that ZERO RFA’s for us is not worth celebrating.

    Disgusting really disgusting…We have such a life threatening condition….Sickenly, we ARE the invisible people, that NO-ONE gives a hot about! Damn Damn these fools with no regard for our plight! Personally, I do my own research and I can be my own guinea pig, for trials….without the pathetic effort of the Legalized Drug Pushing Med Pro…

  3. Maryanne M Brown says:

    Incidentally, “ME” is NOT “CFS” These are 2 entirely separate conditions …Get the BBASIC facts right! I know what I’m talking about!!!!

    Jennie, does the information from which you get these figure list what the dollar grants were for – names of studies or names of diseases for which the research is to be done – and/or the Institutes through which the research is being done?

    Thank you for this. I hope those in the NIH are paying attention to this glaring evidence of ignoring ME.

      The information comes from NIH’s announcements of RFAs. The RFAs themselves are lengthy documents describing the participating institutes, specific descriptions of the kind of work that will be funded, funding amounts and deadlines, etc. I’m counting on the front end as RFAs are announced, not as grants are being made.
