The Mongan Community's Response to COVID-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the nation, the Mongan Institute community mobilized rapidly, leveraging our unique capacity to span data science to delivery science and our particular focus on advancing health equity and improving outcomes for people with complex health-related needs. 


Groundbreaking projects at the Mongan Institute range from epidemiological and clinical cohort studies to projects addressing health disparities and novel approaches to health care delivery of prevention and treatments.

The Clinical and Epidemiology Unit developed a COVID Symptom Tracker App and established a global Coronavirus Pandemic Epidemiology Consortium to build a network of investigators of cohort and clinical studies and to encourage rapid data-sharing. 

Research Training

The MGH COVID Corps Program offers students who are local Boston residents or from a background historically underrepresented in the biomedical research sciences a paid, remote, COVID-related research opportunity. 

We are pleased to announce that 100% of our inaugural 2020 cohort of 22 MGH COVID Corps Scholars are from groups historically underrepresented in the biomedical sciences, with an average undergraduate GPA of 3.86.
