Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: the biological basisPosted: August 2, 2017
Researchers from the National Centre for Neuroimmunology and Emerging Diseases (NCNED) have discovered a cell receptor which could be a key contributing factor to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
And we have the lead researchers presenting their findings at our upcoming Friends of the Library event on 10 August.
Come along to the Gold Coast campus to hear Professor Sonya Marshall-Gradisnik and Professor Don Staines discuss their groundbreaking research, as well as immunological, cell signalling and genetic features in CFS patients.
They will also talk about the challenges with CFS diagnosis, clinical presentation, and treatments.
CFS is a debilitating disorder characterised by extreme fatigue or tiredness that doesn’t go away with rest. It can also be referred to as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
Around 400,000 Australians are believed to be affected by CFS, many of whom are house bound or bed bound.
Following the presentation, Friends of the Library members will be invited to join us for a cocktail reception and the opportunity to network with industry colleagues and our presenters.
It’s an event not to be missed! Register now.
