Dr. Abhijit Chaudhuri, consultant neurologist at the Essex Centre of Neurological Science, is now arguably the leading practising neurologist with an interest in ME/CFS/post-viral syndromes in the UK and Ireland.

Research on fatigue in common neurological disorders is the main theme of Dr. Chaudhuri's work. He takes a special interest in Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and did his PhD thesis on it. Dr. Chaudhuri was involved in research looking at the spinal tissue of a few patients with ME.

Following each talk, there will be a Q&A session.
