Research to start on coronavirus brain damage

Maastricht University is to collaborate with Amsterdam UMC to conduct research on brain damage caused by the coronavirus. The study will follow patients from the first Covid-19 wave for an extended period and examine them for possible brain damage. The results will be used to determine the right treatment for future Covid-19 patients. The research is now able to start thanks to a crowdfunding campaign by the Netherlands Brain Foundation (Hersenstichting), which has raised more than its target of 325,000 euros.
