About the Cornell ENID Center
Foremost among cryptic neuroimmune diseases is one variously known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease. The Center’s mission is to promote research to identify its cause(s), biomarkers, and pathophysiology in order to lead to prevention and effective treatments.

About the Collaborative Research Center Grant from NIH

Cornell has been awarded an NIH U54 grant for a Collaborative Research Center.

The NIH U54 grant at Cornell will fund our multidisciplinary team that has expertise in neuroimaging, metabolic pathways, protein identification and quantification, exercise physiology, immunology, gene expression, and computational analysis of large data sets. By assessing subjects at baseline and following symptom exacerbation, the team will seek to understand the underlying pathophysiology of ME/CFS and enhance knowledge of the lay public, patients, and health professionals concerning the disease.

The Cornell ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center will encompass three Cores (Administrative Core, Clinical Core, Integrative Data Analysis Core) and three Research Projects: Oxidative Stress in the Brain and Neuroinflammation, Extracellular Vesicles in Regulation of Inflammation and Metabolism, and Gene Dysregulation in the Immune System.

The Center will span Cornell’s Ithaca campus, Weill Cornell Medicine, Ithaca College, the Boyce Thompson Institute, the Workwell Foundation, EVMED Research, the SOLVE ME/CFS Initiative and the medical practices of Dr. Susan Levine, Dr. John Chia, and Dr. Geoffrey Moore.
