COVID-19 and Cardiovascular Health 500 281 IEEE Pulse
In late February 2020, a time when severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2, or COVID-19) still felt like an abstraction in the United States, New York City’s first infected patient was admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital’s emergency room. Working a few doors down was Sean Pinney, the Director of Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation. Little did he know, but “that night was the beginning of hell,” he said. read more

Reproductive Health in the Time of COVID 1000 662 IEEE Pulse
In spring 2020, the pandemic began shutting down the world—restaurants, colleges, even entire cities felt emptied and closed. A cloud of uncertainty lingered over most parts of the world and altered our daily schedules and tasks. But for a wide segment of society, it wasn’t the toilet paper, or the masks, or the isolation from their families that hurt the worst—it was the sudden uncertainty around one of the most fundamental aspects of our lives: reproduction. read more

Can Coverscan Help COVID-19 Survivors? 2297 1304 IEEE Pulse
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, doctors and hospitals were overburdened from patients suffering from the immediate, acute effects of the virus. But as time went on, it turned out that even the patients who survived—or had mild symptoms and didn’t require hospitalization—weren’t fully recovered. read more

The RADxSM Tech Process: Accelerating Innovation for COVID-19 Testing

The RADxSM Tech Process: Accelerating Innovation for COVID-19 Testing IEEE Pulse
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for rapid and accurate diagnostic testing across populations quickly became evident. In response, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was determined not only to invest heavily in this area but to change the process by which grant proposals were reviewed and funded in order to spur faster development of viable technologies. The Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) initiative was designed to speed innovation, commercialization, and implementation of potential COVID-19 diagnostic technology. read more
