Healthy volunteers needed for ME research – April

A research team at the neurosciences department of Sussex University are keen to recruit healthy controls for a study being carried out looking at the brain-body mechanisms of chronic pain and fatigue in those affected by Chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia. The study involves three study visits to Brighton and Falmer of up to 5.5 hours each, with routine medical procedures, including brain scans, heart rate and blood pressure measurement, upright tilt testing, questionnaires and blood tests. This project is a collaboration between the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust & Brighton and Sussex Medical School(BSMS). They are seeking healthy volunteers aged 18 or over. You will be reimbursed and receive a copy of your brain scan. Those interested, please contact the research team on PainandfatigueStudy@bsms.ac.uk<mailto:PainandfatigueStudy@bsms.ac.uk> or call Dr Kristy Themelis for further information on 01273 873121.
