December Research News Quarterly

The December Research News Quarterly is now available! This issue features an interview with NIH NIEHS Director Richard Woychik, PhD, discussing the institute’s research on COVID-19, wildfires, climate change and more. The Quarterly also includes a series of ATS member commentaries on COVID-19 research, including news of the new COMET trial, which is studying heterogeneity in host responses to SARS-CoV-2 infections and a historical perspective on randomized controlled trials focusing on their tremendous value in assessing treatments and vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 infections.

The Research News Quarterly offers in-depth coverage of research programs that the ATS monitors, from the National Institute of Health to the Environmental Protection Agency, and many others. For even more policy coverage, including updates on ATS advocacy work, look out for the weekly Washington Letter.
