Ron Davis ME/CFS Research Update: DNA/RNA Technology

Ron Davis ME/CFS Research Update

DNA/RNA Technology with Peidong Shen, PhD

We’re pleased to present the next video in our series of research updates, led by advocate and caregiver Janet Dafoe, PhD. Today, Ron Davis, PhD, sits down to discuss how DNA & RNA technology is being developed and used at Stanford to advance research into ME/CFS, Long COVID, and related multi-system chronic complex diseases (msCCD). This technology is being developed in partnership with Peidong Shen, PhD, at Stanford Genome Technology Center.


OMF is eager to keep the community informed on the progress of this study.

All of these ideas and discoveries advance the critical work of the OMF Collaborative Research Centers (CRC). We are grateful for the opportunity to gather thought-leaders in OMF’s world-class Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Together, the Directors, SAB members, and research collaborators across the 6 OMF supported CRCs are sharing ideas and moving this research forward at an unprecedented pace and scope.
