Neil R. McGregor, BDS, MDSc, PhD, is a senior researcher at the Bio21 Molecular Science and Biotechnology Institute, University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia and an Adjunct Professor at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.[1] Trained as a periodontist, he developed an interest in ME/CFS research after treating ME/CFS patients with temporomandibular dysfunction syndrome.[2] From 2003-2007, Dr. McGregor was a co-editor of the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.[3]

Dr. McGregor is a member of the Working Group which offers their expertise and resources to the ME/CFS Collaborative Research Center at Stanford University.[4]

metabolite - A chemical compound produced by, or involved in, metabolism. The term is often used to refer to the degradation products of drugs in the body.

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.

membrane - The word "membrane" can have different meanings in different fields of biology. In cell biology, a membrane is a layer of molecules that surround its contents. Examples of cell-biology membranes include the "cell membrane" that surrounds a cell, the "mitochondrial membranes" that form the outer layers of mitochondria, and the "viral envelope" that surrounds enveloped viruses. In anatomy or tissue biology, a membrane is a barrier formed by a layer of cells. Examples of anatomical membranes include the pleural membranes that surrounds the lungs, the pericardium which surrounds the heart, and some of the layers within the blood-brain barrier.

serum - The clear yellowish fluid that remains from blood plasma after clotting factors have been removed by clot formation. (Blood plasma is simply blood that has had its blood cells removed.)

renal - involving, related to or in the area of the kidneys

serum - The clear yellowish fluid that remains from blood plasma after clotting factors have been removed by clot formation. (Blood plasma is simply blood that has had its blood cells removed.)

metabolomics - The analysis of the chemical metabolism within cells, tissues or organisms. The term is often used to refer to the full set of metabolites found in a cell in a given environment.
