Background

Understanding the impacts of COVID on the brain is an urgent scientific challenge with short and long-term implications for Irish healthcare and the broader social welfare system. FutureNeuro teams reacted nimbly to the opportunity presented by the establishment of national biobanks and longitudinal-tracked patient cohorts during the pandemic to make important breakthroughs on the mechanism causing Long COVID. Here, we report that the network of small blood vessels in the human brain is disrupted in patients with long-COVID and brain fog (cognitive impairment).

The Deliberative Dialogue process provides a forum to ensure genuine collaboration across all groups from policy makers, patient advocates, the Health Service Executive (HSE) and research community to help shape the implementation of genomic medicine in our health service towards the needs of our citizens – this will include helping to improve diagnosis, provide better treatments and potentially allow preventative actions to take place.
