The position will be physically located at BC Women’s Hospital Campus as part of Department of Family Practice, Faculty of Medicine at the University of British Columbia.

Project Summary: The BC EP-ME Study: Establishing a Population-based Cohort of People with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis in British Columbia: Feasibility Study, led by Dr. Luis Nacul, aims to establish a population-based cohort to help propagate much-needed research developments pertaining to ME/CFS in BC. Using data from consenting participants with and without ME from the BCGP, this project will help inform the future creation of the first Canadian data registry of ME/CFS. Factors such as personal health history, physical measurements, and history of viral exposures will be compared between participants with and without ME/CFS to better understand disease risk factors.

The fellow will take a leadership role in supporting the BC EP-ME study and related Pillar 2 activities within ICanCME. This role will include opportunities for collaboration on research projects and interdisciplinary professional development activities across the network and research group strategic initiatives and their respective core projects. This will include collaboration on the already established Complex Chronic Diseases Program Data Registry (CCDPR) and the Pillar 1 virology study, “The contribution of virus infection to ME: A comprehensive virology study using the BC Generations Project (BCGP) and the Canadian Partnership for Tomorrow Project (CPTP) cohort”.
