Event Description: 

The objectives of this social are to inform the community about (1) what is known about the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the nervous system, (2) the effects of COVID-19 on those suffering from mental, neurological, or substance use disorders, and (3) relevant NIH resources/funding opportunities focused on these effects. The format will include a panel with NIH Institute Directors and other leaders and a Q&A with attendees

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, many in the neuroscience community  are considering the effects of the virus and the pandemic on the nervous system and/or those with mental health, substance use, or neurological disorders. Perspectives from NIH Leadership on cutting-edge discoveries about SARS-CoV-2, scientific priorities, and available research resources, coupled with the opportunity for questions and community insights, will spur scientific enterprise to public benefit.
