NIHR funds £5.5 million into new research projects to investigate long-term impacts of COVID-19
The NIHR has funded nine new research projects to help us to better manage current and future waves of the COVID-19 pandemic and investigate its long-term impact on society and the health and care system.
The projects, which total £5.5 million in funding, span a wide range of specialties and scientific disciplines and were funded at a rapid pace due to the urgency of the pandemic. Research ranges from digital devices to help improve tracking and tracing in care homes, to remote rehabilitation regimes for patients affected by Long-COVID and tools and support systems to help staff boost their wellbeing and performance during further stages of the pandemic.
