VCU is building a biobank to fight COVID-19

While VCU Health doctors and nurses focus on saving lives and finding treatment options, other Virginia Commonwealth University researchers behind the scenes are setting the stage for long-term investigations into the novel coronavirus.

Somaya Albhaisi, M.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at the VCU School of Medicine, has created a COVID-19 registry, and she received one of 31 awards from the COVID-19 Rapid Research Funding Opportunity to do it.
