VUMC to lead national study to treat severe COVID complications

The Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (VICTR) has been awarded a major federal grant to lead a national trial of treatments targeting the Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone System (RAAS) in patients hospitalized with COVID-19.

VUMC aids national effort to repurpose drugs for COVID-19

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) has been named Data Coordinating Center (DCC) for a nationwide platform of studies aimed at “repurposing” existing drugs to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19.

Study outlines VUMC’s strategy for a learning health care system

New investments in clinical programs at Vanderbilt University Medical Center are increasingly contingent upon studies to validate claims of benefit and the potential for scalability and spread.
