Workwell to Collaborate with Cornell University's NIH ME/CFS Center

Workwell Foundation continues to move research forward as a member of Cornell University's Center for Enervating NeuroImmune Disease. This NIH funded center grant will utilize the cardiopulmonary exercise test, re-test protocol pioneered by Workwell to characterize and evaluate the functional status of people with ME/CFS. Biological samples obtained from subjects will be used to identify changes in the physiological and molecular responses to exercise. To learn more see the NIH Press Release and Cornell Chronicle news article.



NIH Focus Group Research Update

The NIH Intramural Study has completed the enrollment of four PEM focus groups, in which 19 individuals with ME/CFS participated. Workwell was active in the recruitment phase for this project. We look forward to seeing the results of this promising study. Thank you to everyone who participated.
