Study identifies four major subtypes of long COVID

The researchers used a machine-learning algorithm to spot symptom patterns in the health records of nearly 35,000 U.S. patients who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection and later developed lingering long-COVID-type symptoms.

Seed grants foster collaboration across Cornell campuses

The funding will support preliminary disease-related research, in the latest in a series of efforts to create new opportunities for interdisciplinary research.

Shielding likely reduced COVID exposure for pregnant people early in pandemic

Those already pregnant at the beginning of the pandemic had a 50% lower exposure to SARS-CoV-2 compared with those who became pregnant after the pandemic began and the general population, Weill Cornell researchers and colleagues found.

Experimental vaccines offer long-term protection against severe COVID

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine and colleagues found that two-dose vaccines still provide protection against lung disease in rhesus macaques a year after they had been vaccinated as infants.

To prevent the next pandemic, restore wildlife habitats

Preserving and restoring natural habitats could prevent pathogens that originate in wildlife from spilling over into domesticated animals and humans, according to two new companion studies.

Theory explains recovery delays in COVID and cardiac patients

The long delays some COVID patients experience in regaining consciousness after ventilation may protect the brain from oxygen deprivation, new research shows.  

Grant to fund global study of COVID-19 surveillance

With the six-month, $1 million grant, Weill Cornell Medicine researchers will assess how countries have been monitoring and reporting COVID-19 infections and outcomes.
