John Baratta, MD, MBA helped start the UNC COVID Recovery Clinic—where patients can get help for their ongoing symptoms and doctors can gather valuable data. “We don’t have a lot of specific, scientific answers because it’s just all so new,” Baratta says. “Through research, that’s what we and others have to figure out.” To start finding answers for patients with "long COVID," the clinic team, with

Working towards a cure for HIV requires many things, including tenacity, determination, and collaboration. Nilu Goonetilleke, PhD – an immunologist in the University of North Carolina School of Medicine – is well-equipped to meet this challenge. Learn more about how Goonetilleke is changing the trajectory of HIV with research support from the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences (NC

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a hereditary multisystem vascular disease of abnormal angiogenesis and the second most common hereditary bleeding disorder in the world. Harvard KL2 Scholar Hanny Al-Samkari, MD will describe the revolutionary potential of anti-angiogenic therapy in HHT and the evidence to date for systemic bevacizumab as a treatment for bleeding and anemia in HHT.

The opioid crisis response has largely overlooked multiple patient populations with complex opioid-related vulnerabilities, including older adults with cancer or dementia. Join Andrew Roberts, a CTSA KL2 Scholar who trained at UNC, for a presentation of findings from his work examining high-risk opioid use patterns and outcomes in older adult cancer survivors. He will also discuss future

Many clinical questions have arisen with the COVID-19 pandemic, from who is at greatest risk for COVID-19 infection to adverse outcomes if infected to how COVID-19 has impacted healthcare utilization patterns. To help answer these questions, and many more, the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) has integrated real-world clinical observations from across the nation into a harmonized database

The cross-sectional association of renal dysfunction with tests of cognition in middle-aged adults with early type 2 diabetes: The GRADE Study

The association of renal dysfunction with tests of cognition in type 2 diabetes has been examined in individuals with moderate and advanced renal disease. Here we examine the association of renal dysfunction with tests of cognition in a cohort of middle-aged adults with short duration diabetes (mean

Impact of the CYP2C19*17 Allele on Outcomes in Patients Receiving Genotype-Guided Antiplatelet Therapy After Percutaneous Coronary Intervention

Genotyping for CYP2C19 no function alleles to guide antiplatelet therapy after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) improves clinical outcomes. Although results for the increased function CYP2C19*17 allele are also reported, its clinical relevance in this setting remains unclear. A collaboration

Beta-adrenergic blockade blunts inflammatory and antiviral/antibody gene expression responses to acute psychosocial stress

Dysregulation of the immune system is one potential mechanism by which acute stress may contribute to downstream disease etiology and psychopathology. Here, we tested the role of β-adrenergic signaling as a mediator of acute stress-induced changes in immune cell gene expression. In a randomized
