    [I probably won't keep posting announcementson Invest in ME events or announcements/initiatives - so if people want to learn about events in the future in the UK e.g. like the conference they've organised in London for May 12, (and possibly elsewhere) maybe you could consider signing up. Of course, the immunesupport.com site has lots of other info so you may read about a lot fo the stuff there. Tom K.]

    The "Invest in ME" (electronic) Newsletter for December 2005 has now been sent out to those who have signed up.

    To sign up (it's free),
    go to:

    http://www.investinme.org/IIMENewslettersubs.htm

    [AOL: <a href="http://www.investinme.org/IIMENewslettersubs.htm">Here</a>]

    It's all UK news at present as all their contacts are from there but the newsletter mentions looking for contacts outside the UK (who can sign up at: http://www.investinme.org/contactreg.htm ) so perhaps there will also be focus on other countries in the future, depending on the interest.

    "In order to function as a central ME events organiser we need regional contacts who are passionate about the need for funding for biomedical research and who can be the main contact for information on events and opportunities in regions across the UK, or across the world. Every country is a welcome addition to our contacts."
