Ronald Wayne Davis, PhD., is a Professor of Biochemistry & Genetics and the Director of the Stanford Genome Technology Center at Stanford University. In 1983, he was bestowed the honor of being elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences.[1]

His son, Whitney Dafoe, is severely ill with myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). Professor Davis leads the End ME/CFS Project with the Open Medicine Foundation whose first project was the ME/CFS Severely Ill, Big Data Study.[2]

Committees and boards[edit | edit source]

Open Medicine Foundation[edit | edit source]

Director of the Scientific Advisory Board at Open Medicine Foundation, which is committed to research for ME/CFS and related chronic complex diseases.[3]

Institute of Medicine report[edit | edit source]

Dr. Davis was one of the experts on the "Committee on the Diagnostic Criteria for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" that was convened as per US government request for the 2015 Institute of Medicine.[4] The Institute of Medicine has since changed its name to the National Academy of Medicine.[5]

ME/CFS Common Data Element (CDE) Project[edit | edit source]

Member of the Biomarkers Working Group of the Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Common Data Element (CDE) Project sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[6]

Advocacy[edit | edit source]

Open Letters[edit | edit source]

Millions Missing protest[edit | edit source]

Dr. Ron Davis and his wife, Dr. Janet Dafoe, protested with #MillionsMissing at the San Francisco satellite protest on May 25, 2016.[11] Dr. Davis gave a speech about the challenges ME patients face, and his hopes for the future of ME research.[12] To see video of Dr. Davis's interview at the San Francisco #MillionsMissing click HERE.

ME/CFS research[edit | edit source]

  • June 2018, Dr. Davis and the Stanford Genome Center received a grant award for the research study 'Molecular and Single-cell Immunology of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome' "to investigate the immunological basis of ME/CFS using cutting-edge technologies to understand the role of infection and autoimmunity in the behavior of single immune cells from patients – offering precise insights into how this complex illness originates and persists that may lead to new strategies for treatment."[15] This is a five-year study that will receive $745,000 a year.[16]
