Studying Long COVID in Drug Development


As the initial COVID-19 pandemic begins to resolve in the form of vaccines and treatment pathways, research into the long-term effects of COVID is building. In response, in December, Congress provided $1.15 billion in funding over four years for NIH to support research into the prolonged health consequences of SARS-CoV-2 infection. This roundtable of experts from various stakeholder groups will discuss the current research into long-haul COVID, or PASC; disparate theories of causes; challenges in research and diagnosis, as well as PASC potential in drug development.
