Sharing science to understand Long COVID

RECOVER Research Review (R3) Seminar Series

The goal of the R3 Seminar Series is to share the RECOVER Initiative’s research findings with researchers and the public. These seminars accelerate scientific discovery by allowing experts to share their latest insights on Long COVID and related conditions. Some R3 sessions also inform the public about other research on Long COVID. You can find recordings of all R3 Seminar sessions in the Previous Seminars section below.
