Dr. Christopher R. Snell, Ph.D
Scientific Advisory Committee Chair @Workwell Foundation
Dr. Christopher Snell has over 20 years’ experience studying ME/CFS and in particular the post-exertional fatigue and malaise that typifies this illness. He is part of a group that was among the first to advocate for use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing to measure fatigue in ME/CFS research. Together they have probably conducted more exercise tests with patients than anyone. Their two-day exercise testing protocol has potential to be a biomarker for both pathology and function in ME/CFS. Dr. Snell is a former chair of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee (CFSAC) to the U.S. Secretary for Health. He has published extensively on ME/CFS and lectured in the USA and abroad, including invited presentations for the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration.
