This past November, @DrMaureenHanson visited the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University in Japan to participate in their distinguished speaker series. Dr. Hanson’s talk provided general awareness about ME/CFS and shared details on the Center’s research. In particular, the research topics covered were the functioning of immune cells, cellular metabolism, the microbiome, neuroimaging, and exercise physiology.  While in Japan, Dr. Hanson spoke with a representative of the Japan ME Association.  ME/CFS researchers in Japan hope to attend the April 2019 NIH meeting.
