Open Medicine Foundation Canada
Open Medicine Foundation Canada (OMFCA) has the bold mission of solving and breaking the cycle of multisystem chronic complex diseases like ME/CFS, Long COVID, Post-Treatment Lyme, and others, and to help cure patients of these life altering diseases. Vital to this mission is to financially support outcome-directed research at global centers (including the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at CHU Sainte-Justine /Université de Montréal) that work openly, urgently, and collaboratively with each other (and the broader research community of scientists and clinicians), and translate findings to treatments. By establishing clear disease mechanisms, improving diagnoses, and establishing effective treatments, we will significantly improve patient outcomes while advancing cures, and halting the global growth of these diseases which now impact close to 200 million people worldwide. Our researchers’ findings are providing the knowledge we need to diminish the long-term impacts of the next major outbreak or pandemic.
