Meet Open Medicine Foundation Australia’s Board of Directors.
Bill is a Trustee of The William Angliss Charitable Fund. He has 37 years of experience in the financial services industry and previously was a partner and investment banker at JBWere and Goldman Sachs JBWere.
Bill’s son was diagnosed with post viral infective ME/CFS in 2007-8, and at present is unable to work or study. Bill, like Linda, is passionate about OMF’s objectives to find treatments and cures, and especially about OMF’s global strategy which sees over 200 scientists and clinicians from around the globe working together every week. OMF does this in a friendly and cooperative way, and combines the results of analyzing many different systems and patients. Bill believes strongly in this collaborative, results-oriented, cost effective approach to achieving answers quickly.
Bill has a BA from ANU, a Graduate Diploma in Finance and Investment, and has attended a number of summer schools at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. He is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and the Financial Services Institute of Australia.
Mr. Ingram has run his own Strategy Consulting firm for over ten years. His clients include commercial organizations (from ASX-listed top 20 companies to technology start-ups), Government entities (including federally funded scientific agencies, and state government departments), and non-government organizations (including patient advocacy organizations and a medical society). His clients are principally Australian based, but Nick works in other Pacific Rim countries including New Zealand, The Philippines, and the West Coast of the US.
Nick has an adult daughter who has been living with ME/CFS for the last ten years.
Prior to working in strategy, Nick had twenty years’ experience in financial services (including investment banking and stockbroking). He holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Sydney with First Class Honors in Pure Mathematics.
Louise Myer is a member of the Myer Foundation. She has spent much of her life involved in philanthropic activities and has worked on numerous boards including the Melbourne Community Foundation, the Myer Community Fund (a founding director) and Asialink.
Her son was diagnosed with ME/CFS at 12 years of age which changed both his and her life. She is very keen to promote and support research for ME/CFS and related chronic complex diseases in order to help improve the lives of sufferers.
Make the most of your donation by donating your Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies directly to OMF Australia rather than selling and donating the after-tax proceeds.

Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes.
