COVID19 and research: What can I do?

With the COVID19 pandemic hitting us, it is imperative to know where to get our trusted info from. Multiple research papers are emerging these days with one main big goal: Understanding this disease and how to stop it!

In addition to reading and following these research papers, you, yes you, can be a researcher yourself. You can help in fighting this disease and aid humanity.

The studies mentioned below are international studies aiming at understanding COVID19 and its implications:

1- Covidsurg:

Covidsurg is an international cohort study, aiming to assess the outcomes of surgery in patients diagnosed in COVID-19.

It is for patients who undergo surgery with either suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection (either before or after surgery). Cases can be entered either prospectively or retrospectively.

There is no evidence to inform the management of surgical patients with COVID-19 infection. Capturing real-world data and sharing international experience will support the management of this complex group of patients, improving their clinical care.

2- CovidSurg-Cancer: 

CovidSurg-Cancer is an international cohort study assessing the safety of surgery for all types of cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the pandemic in cancer delay and treatment pathways.

For more info :


-You can start these studies at your hospital anywhere now! Get the required IRB approval and collect data.

-All publications will be Pub-Med indexed. A corporate authorship model will be used under CovidSurg Collaborative group.

Stay safe
