COVID-19 Research and NICHD

For the latest COVID-19 public health information and treatment/prevention guidance, visit https://www.cdc.gov/ coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, NICHD has worked to understand the effects of the virus among populations central to the NICHD mission, including pregnant and postpartum women, children and adolescents, and people with disabilities.

The institute has generated research proposals and projects; collaborated with other NIH institutes, centers, and offices (ICOs) and federal agencies; and initiated studies to help build a research base on the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

NICHD also co-leads the Trans-NIH COVID-19 Workgroup on Pregnant & Lactating Women and Children with the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and participates in many of NIH’s Strategic Response Activities, including trans-NIH programs related to COVID-19, such as the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxSM) initiative.
