We are actively seeking funds to support comprehensive studies into
the role of the bacteria, fungi and viruses in CFS. Research into the
human microbiome is an exciting new pathway to advance our
understanding of the role that over a trillion microorganisms in our
body play in health and in the development of disease. An altered
microbiome may cause not only gastrointestinal problems but also
immunological and brain dysfunction. As the world's largest and most
advanced academic center in microbe discovery, identification and
diagnosis, the Center for Infection & Immunity at Columbia University
is optimally positioned to embark upon the challenge to determine how
bacteria, fungi, viruses and toxins (and the immune response to them)
contribute to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
Discoveries in these areas may point us toward treatment strategies
that reduce vulnerability through exclusion diets, probiotics or

The goal of this effort is $1.27 million by December 31, 2014.
