COVID and the Nervous System: A Chat with NIH

This virtual event is associated with the Society for Neuroscience Global Connectome but is open to the public and is not contingent upon registration for the SfN Global Connectome Meeting.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many in the neuroscience community are considering the effects of the virus and the pandemic on the nervous system and/or those with mental health, substance use, or neurological disorders. Perspectives from NIH Leadership on cutting-edge discoveries about SARS-CoV-2, scientific priorities, and available research resources, coupled with the opportunity for questions and community insights, will spur scientific enterprise to public benefit.

The objectives of this social are to inform the community about (1) what is known about the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the nervous system, (2) the effects of COVID-19 on those suffering from mental, neurological, or substance use disorders, and (3) relevant NIH resources/funding opportunities focused on these effects. The format will include a panel with NIH Institute Directors and other leaders and a Q&A with attendees.
