Whittemore Peterson Institute - Our Mission

Finally! A dedicted research establishment for neuro-immune diseases such as ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, atypical MS, and autism.

CFS/ Fibro has stolen the best part of the last 18 years of my life.....

Whittemore Peterson Institute - Our Mission:

"The Whittemore Peterson Institute for Neuro Immune Disease exists to bring discovery, knowledge, and effective treatments to patients with illnesses that are caused by acquired dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system, often resulting in life long disease and disability.

Our first goal is to work towards developing a better understanding of the natural history of these diseases, thereby diagnosing and treating patients accurately and efficiently. Generating and sustaining a blood and tissue repository and a clinical database for ME/CFS and ultimately for other neuroimmune diseases is a primary focus of the Institute.

Our goals include:
To facilitate and advance patient care
Research the pathophysiology of neuro-immune diseases such as ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, atypical MS, and autism
Develop therapeutics, diagnostics and prevention strategies for this spectrum of diseases
To advance and support medical education and physician training"
