In our fifth episode we move the lens beyond treatment and focus on research.  We discuss the challenges of the research in neuroscience and how we can make the case for the value of innovation in brain research.  We’ll discuss the importance of prevention and ask-  is this a watershed moment for research?

We’ll also hear directly from a person living with ME as well as a message on treatment from the neurology community.
