A newly-formed UK group called MEGA (M.E./CFS Epidemiology and Genomics Alliance) set up a petition to demonstrate public support to obtain millions of pounds from ‘mainstream research funders’ for their ‘biomedical research project’.

The original petition raised red flags and subsequent updates by MEGA have served to increase the number of concerns.

As a petition registers only support, a counter-petition has been created for those wishing to register a vote of no confidence in MEGA –
Opposing MEGA’ – A Vote of no confidence in MEGA research for M.E.
