Hello friends,

As we move into summer and the country works through a phased reopening, academic and clinical researchers are coming back online with social distancing measures in place. For many academic researchers, this means lab activities beginning to resume but not at full capacity, and many lab teams working in staggered schedules to reduce the number of staff in a space at any one time.

Our Collaborative Clinical Research Network (CCRN) sites are beginning to see patients in person again for both clinical and research visits. During the first months, they will continue to work at a reduced volume and with new practices and procedures in place to protect staff and patients. We encourage you to contact your site to learn how best to proceed. Whether you are involved in ongoing research or considering participating in a new study, your coordinator can discuss options for in-person versus telemedicine visits.

Thank you for your ongoing support of FA research ...
