MFMU PASC-PREG: Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 Infection in Pregnant Patients and Their Offspring

Project: Research project

Project Details


Our Network Center has an established and efficient perinatal research infrastructure over which I serve as Director. In that capacity I will facilitate the contact and enrollment of women identified within our sites who experienced COVID-19 infections during their recent pregnancies. We can also identify and recruit appropriately matched controls if that should be necessary. I will also arrange for appropriate training and certification of our research staff, who will subsequently schedule and, as appropriate, perform the follow-up evaluation and testing of our research cohort participants. Each of our three participating hospitals has ready access to a full array of medical subspecialists as well as neurodevelopmental testing experts who can provide timely and comprehensive assessment of our participants. Likewise, we have worked for the past several decades with the MFMU Network’s Data Coordinating Center (George Washington University) for reporting and distribution of capitated research funding. We are also happy to continue our relationship with the Advarra IRB, which has served as the single IRB for the GRAVID Study. Continuing this relationship will facilitate our ability to rapidly adapt to the specifications of the ‘cohort of cohorts’.
