Research Grand Rounds: Modeling Exertional Exhaustion in Gulf War Illness (GWI) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)

Date Fri, May 7
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom


This month's Research Grand Rounds features James N. Baraniuk, MD, Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University. Dr. Baraniuk will discuss "Modeling Exertional Exhaustion in Gulf War Illness (GWI) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)".

ABSTRACT: Dr. Baraniuk serves as Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University where, for over 20 years, his NIH (NIAID, NIEHS, NCRR, NINDS) and DOD supported research has focused primarily on careful phenotyping, mechanistic, biomarker, and therapeutic studies to improve the understanding and care of patients with complex, chronic, multi-symptom illnesses including Gulf War Illness and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. His research has leveraged his remarkable engagement with Veteran and Patient communities, cutting-edge and discipline-spanning molecular, analytical, neuroimaging, and informatics approaches, and complex clinical protocols that have depended on our expert clinical research unit staff. His work underscores the centrality of rigorous human subjects research to understand and improve patient care in complex clinical disorders. His talk will focus on exertional exhaustion, a defining, distressing, and debilitating characteristic of GWI and ME/CFS.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
