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)
Hannah Bulosan
Theodore Huo

Stephanie Matsuura
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.

The Strength of Many.
