The purpose of this study is to find out differences in a part of the immune system between healthy volunteers and those with SARS-CoV-2 infection (i.e. COVID-19). These samples will be used to describe the innate immune system and assess how it may predict patients with greater risk for more serious complications.
The purpose is to understand the needs, resiliencies, and strengths of Black families during the pandemic. COVID-19 has disproportionately affected Black communities at higher rates; thusly, this study seeks to understand what families have use to survive and thrive during this period.
We will be collaborating with the RAPID-EC national survey team and conducting focus groups with Black and Latine families with young children across the country to get an actual and perceived sense of relief from the passing of the American Relief Act.

The COVID-19 pandemic is shifting everyday life for Americans with profound economic, health, and psychological consequences. The impact of these disruptions on cancer survivors specifically warrants investigation, as this population may be at increased risk for serious illness complication. The goal of the proposed COVID-19 Cancer Study (CovCS) is to establish the feasibility and acceptability of conducting a contact study on the COVID-19 experiences of cancer survivors in North Carolina. CovCS will determine feasibility and acceptability of conducting participant-contact research during the COVID-19 pandemic with cancer survivors (colorectal, lung, bladder, kidney, breast and prostate cancer) and controls.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how well the COVID-19 vaccine works for patients with IBD. This includes people with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. We want to learn more about side effects and whether the vaccine impacts IBD activity. This study does not provide the COVID-19 vaccine and is only for people who have already received at least 1 vaccine.
Purpose: To understand the experiences of employees during the Covid-19 pandemic and what factors may impact their behaviors and experiences post-pandemic.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the ability of various drugs to improve health outcomes for people with COVID-19. We also want to see if these drugs are safe, and if these drugs can stop the disease process and prevent hospitalization. This study is designed to quickly identify safe and effective drugs that can treat COVID-19. This study will be done at an international site and overseen by research team in Malawi; Research for Me will not be applicable.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, evidence has been gradually emerging indicating that gastrointestinal (GI) and liver symptoms and problems may play an important role in the disease, and there is growing concern that these effects may linger for extended periods, even long after recovery from the viral infection. The purpose of this study is to evaluate gastrointestinal disorders and digestive tract symptoms in people who have had COVID-19 in the past, as well as the after-effects on wellbeing and life functioning that may still remain after the illness, and to gain understanding of what factors determine the degree and nature of any such after-effects.
