The Coronavirus Risk Associations and Longitudinal Evaluation (CORALE) study was organized as a scientific rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are clinicians treating patients at the frontline and researchers working at the interface between the bedside and the bench. We are collectively united in efforts to address the public health crisis posed by COVID-19.

corale /ko’rale/ (Italian)

On March 14, 2020, quarantined Italian citizens organized to sing from their balconies to create community during this era of coronavirus. We were inspired.
