Reasons to Join StudyME

Every year, your support helps OMF to raise millions of dollars for ME/CFS research. This allows us to work closely with scientists around the world who are racing to find a cure for this devastating illness.

Believe it or not, one of the most common complaints researchers have, is how difficult it is to find people to participate in their research studies. 

This is ironic, because one of the most common complaints we hear from patients is how difficult it is to find out about opportunities to participate in research studies.

Finally, there is an easier way! OMF’s StudyME is a participant registry for researchers to connect with people who want to participate in research studies of ME/CFS, Long COVID, and related post-infection illnesses. Signing up takes just five minutes, and you can join from anywhere in the world. After you sign up, you’ll receive email alerts when researchers recruit for studies that align with your interest

Since we launched OMF’s StudyME this May, we’ve already had over 3,000 people sign up. Thank you! We’re excited to build this community, but we’re still a long way away from our goal of 100,000 participants. Still on the fence?
