COVID-19 Research

NeuCOVID Study

Our research group has partnered with a range of neurology specialists in order to investigate the longitudinal neurological impacts of COVID-19. Our NeuCOVID study aims to track neurological symptom and disease developments and changes over a 10-year period through neuropsychological metrics and detailed interviews.

We are currently accepting new participants. If you have been diangosed with COVID-19 and have experienced neurological symptoms (headaches, brain fog, anosmia, etc.) and would like to participate in our study, contact Jacqui Shanley at jshanley@health.ucsd.edu.
