NIH Selects Five JABSOM Students for NeuroCOVID Research Project
A new database will collect information from clinicians about COVID-19-related neurological symptoms, complications, and outcomes as well as COVID-19 effects on pre-existing neurological conditions. The COVID-19 Neuro Databank/Biobank (NeuroCOVID), which was created and will be maintained by NYU Langone Health, New York City, will be a resource of clinical information as well as biospecimens from people of all ages who have experienced neurological problems associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection. The database is supported by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).
Congratulations to our JABSOM medical students for being selected to be a part of this NIH-funded NeuroCOVID research project:
Connor Goo (Lead student researcher)
Edward Weldon IV
Healthcare providers and participating clinical sites across the United States are also invited to use the web-based data portal to submit de-identified information into the database, along with relevant biospecimens collected during research studies or from previous clinical procedures and tests.
