Gyongyi Szabo, MD, PhD, Chief Academic Officer, BIDMC and BILH, discusses how lab work has changed due to COVID-19. She encouraged lab members not in the lab to take advantage and “do some deep thinking.” They should ask themselves, she said, whether they’re on the right path and, if so, think about new projects, set goals for the next year, and consider where they see themselves in five years.

Same old labs but not

Researchers at BIDMC and Massachusetts General Hospital published a study Thursday in the Annals of Hematology that found no evidence that blood type affects whether someone develops severe symptoms (defined as intubation or death) from a coronavirus infection.

Why do we have different blood types — and do they make us more vulnerable to Covid-19?

Researchers at BIDMC, led by Scott Fligor, MD (Surgery, BIDMC) analyzed 15 years of data to determine how long surgery for certain types of cancer can be delayed without harming patients’ chances of survival. The study began in early spring, as the pandemic led many hospitals to cancel or postpone non-emergency procedures, including surgery for cancer.

Kartik Sehgal, MD (Hematology-Oncology, BIDMC) co-led a report published in Nature Medicine that chronicled the many ways that COVID-19 goes beyond the lungs to affect the heart, brain, kidneys and endocrine system. The extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19 are incredibly varied, researchers say, with the heart and kidneys particularly vulnerable to damage.
