  • Recovered from COVID-19? Help researchers make discoveries against COVID-19

    A Dana-Farber research team, led by Wayne A. Marasco, MD, PhD, is conducting a COVID-19 Protective Immunity Study to better understand the key factors that influence human immune responses to the SARS-CoV2, as well as develop novel, effective and durable broad-spectrum SARS-CoV vaccines.

    Health care workers, cancer patients, or otherwise healthy individuals who recovered from COVID-19 infection are asked to consider participating in this study. 150 volunteers will be enrolled during and shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic period.

    Joining the COVID-19 Protective Immunity Study is simple. Learn more and provide your contact information. A research nurse will then contact you. For detailed information, please read the COVID-19 Protective Immunity Study recruitment literature.

    Clinicians, please make cancer patients who have recovered from COVID-19 infections aware of this study.
