NIH, please create a new RFA for ME/CFS

A group of scientists from around the country have recently pointed out the obvious: that ME/CFS is massively underfunded. Kindly

1. please administer grants to qualified researchers to study this underserved illness

2. give ME/CFS a rightful home in the neurological disease department (NINDS)

Why is this important?
