Full project summary
The Sodora laboratory has an interest in understanding the inflammatory immune factors associated with long-COVID (aka Post-Acute Syndrome of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC)). Studies thus far have focused on the contributions of monocytes/macrophages toward the inflammation observed in people previously SARS-CoV-2 infected with symptoms at time points greater than 4 weeks post-infection.
In addition, Dr. Sodora and Nina Derby have participated in scientific outreach on this topic, creating content that is currently available on Youtube. This included putting together a panel of scientists, doctors and long-COVID sufferers to discuss issues associated with long-COVID and possible strategies for treatment. This discussion was posted in November 2020 on to the channel ‘Covid Conversations with Scientists’.
