CT Children’s wins grant to study COVID-19

The National Institutes of Health awarded a research grant to Connecticut Children’s Hospital to study risk factors for COVID-19 complications in children.

Connecticut Children’s is one of eight entities nationwide to receive NIH grants for research projects focused on identifying children at high risk for Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome, a rare but severe after-effect of COVID-19. NIH will pay up to $20 million to the eight research projects over two years, the Institute said.
