Video Presentations for ME/CFS Symposium at Stanford

I posted a couple of weeks ago about an exciting all-day symposium being held at Stanford University and hosted by Open Medicine Foundation: Community Symposium on the Molecular Basis of ME/CFS. The agenda was packed full of top doctors and scientists and from all accounts, it was an excellent day with some very informative and interesting presentations.

The entire day was recorded and is now available on YouTube at this link.

It's 8 hours of video, so here is an outline, with time stamps for the video, in case you want to pick and choose which parts you watch:

Chris Armstrong: ME, metabolism and I (00:38)
Jonas Bergquist: In search of biomarkers revealing pathophysiology in a Swedish ME/CFS patient cohort (00:53)

I need to find time to watch some of these myself! Hopefully, things will quiet down a bit now for me (and I will be able to post to the blog more regularly) with my sons back in college for the fall.

If you watch some of these presentations, please leave comments below regarding what you found interesting or enlightening and which presentations you'd recommend that others watch.
