COVID-19 Biorepository
 

The Georgia CTSA Clinical Research Center at Emory has established a COVID-19 Biorepository that includes residual nasopharyngeal (NP) swab samples from over 1,700 patients known to be COVID-19 positive and negative.

Our goal is to provide de-identified samples to investigators validating or developing diagnostics and therapeutics in an effort to improve the understanding of the effects, response, and mechanism of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants.
