RECOVER: Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery

Professionals wearing masks

The NIH-sponsored Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER) Initiative was established to learn about the long-term effects of COVID. Help us find answers by sharing your experience and volunteering to participate in research. RECOVER seeks to understand, prevent, and treat long-term health effects related to COVID. Researchers call these long-lasting effects PASC (post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2). You may know them as Long COVID.

To understand Long COVID, we need to hear from people who’ve experienced it and people who had COVID and recovered quickly. You can also help us learn about the long-term effects of COVID — so we can find ways to prevent and treat them. We can also learn about COVID from people who have not had COVID.

All procedures and testing are completely optional and are provided through the study at no cost to the participant.
