NIH Launches New COVID-19 Website Featuring Research Response

The National Institutes of Health has launched a new website that provides the research community and the public with trusted, up-to-date, accurate information about NIH research on COVID-19 at NIH and across the NIH-supported research community. The website offers NIH COVID-19–related information in one location, including funding opportunities and research news on vaccines, treatments, and testing. Users can search funding information for COVID-19 research by state, institution, Congressional district, and more. To support ongoing efforts to direct the public to evidence-based information on COVID-19, the website also provides information and resources on joining clinical trials and donating plasma, and directs users to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Department of State, and other federal agency websites. Visit covid19.nih.gov to learn more.

This Discussion Forum also includes resources on telehealth and remote supervision and wellness, to name a few. To participate, members should login to NSGCommunities with their NSGC credentials, and non-members should create a free guest account on the NSGC website.
