Looking for Covid-Positive People

NHLBI researchers seek Covid-19-positive patients in the DMV area for a new clinical trial. The study hopes to help researchers understand how coronavirus affects the function of the body’s immune system in controlling the infection. Additionally, researchers want to understand how different organs of the body (such as the lungs, heart, brain and kidneys) respond to the infection from its early appearance to recovery, and whether there are any long-term effects. For details, see All medical care is at no cost to the participant and compensation for the entire study is provided. Contact for more information.
