How we’re leveraging the You + M.E. Registry to Study COVID-19

A registry for the whole ME/CFS community

Together we can uncover causes and identify treatments for ME/CFS

ME/CFS is one of the few remaining, highly prevalent, debilitating diseases about which very little is known. To better understand the disease and characterize subtypes, we need a large, rich data set gathered over time from thousands of people with ME/CFS and healthy controls. This will drive discovery towards a potential cure for this disease.

How it works
