ACTIV Seminar Series: Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2


COVID patients who experience lingering symptoms for months or weeks after initial recovery are said to have post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC), or long COVID. Major gaps in our understanding of the preclinical and clinical manifestations of PASC, however, hinder the development of effective therapeutic interventions. The Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) partnership aims to collect and disseminate Research to advance efforts to treat this condition.

In this seminar series, organized by ACTIV in partnership with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), leading experts on PASC will present their published or ongoing Research on different aspects of the disease. The sessions will be recorded and published for later use by the field.
