The International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) held a virtual international scientific conference on August 19-21, 2021. Several members of our Center participated in this meeting by presenting either an oral or a poster presentation. In particular, postdoctoral associates, Arnaud German, Ph.D., and Ludovic Giloteaux, Ph.D., gave oral presentations on the impacts of a two-day CPET on metabolomics and extracellular vesicle proteomics, respectively. John Chia, M.D., gave two presentations on the implications of COVID-19 and enterovirus infections on ME/CFS.
Additionally, Adam O’Neal, Jessica Maya, and Paul Munn, Ph.D. presented posters at the conference. O’Neal presented work from his recent review on the enterovirus theory in ME/CFS. Maya showed recent findings on her immune cell metabolism experiments. Lastly, Munn displayed the progress he has made in creating an integrative database platform for the Center.
