Medical School Researcher to Present on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Mar. 19



Nancy Klimas, M.D.



Nancy Klimas, M.D., NSU College of Osteopathic Medicine professor and researcher, will be presenting her research on chronic fatigue syndrome and neuro-immune medicine on Monday, Mar. 19 at the NSU Health Professions Division’s Chancellor’s Dining Room. The presentation, which will take place at noon, will include a demonstration of REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture).

Klimas, who is one of the world’s leading researchers and clinicians on chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), a debilitating immune disorder that affects more than 4 million Americans, joined NSU’s medical school on Dec. 1. A majority of CFS sufferers are women, who remain mostly untreated.

Klimas, who is also an expert in immune disorders, will become the medical director of the newly created NSU Center for Neuro Immune Disorder, which will conduct groundbreaking research and treat patients suffering from CFS.  The Center for Neuro Immune Disorders will use the integration of research, training, and clinical care to advance the needs of patients suffering from CFS.  By bringing together some of the best scientific minds in the world, the center will act as both a think tank and a working institute for the research, train new clinicians, and provide diagnostic and therapeutic clinical care.

She is also a leading national researcher on Gulf War Syndrome. This medical condition affects veterans and civilians who were exposed to chemical weapons during the 1991 Gulf War. Symptoms include musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, skin rashes, cognitive problems, and diarrhea.
