WPI Medical Director

Dr. Kenny De Meirleir serves as Medical Director of WPI and maintains an independent medical practice at the Center for Translational Medicine.

Dr. De Meirleir has extensive experience treating patients with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) and other chronic diseases. Much of Dr. De Meirleir’s success with his patients stems from his comprehensive treatment approach. His goal is to reduce the severity of illness through appropriate dietary changes, immune support, and specific drug treatments for chronic infectious pathogens.

Dr. De Meirleir earned his medical degree from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 1977, and completed an internal medicine residency in the Department of Internal Medicine, University Hospital of Vrije Universiteit Brussel. His current research focuses on a subgroup of ME patients who show evidence of chronic bacterial infection and gut dysbiosis. These patients are responding to specific antibiotic/ probiotic therapy.
