Please share information about how the pandemic has impacted your research over the last two years.

There was a five-month period when we could not conduct murine research. Immediately following the start of the pandemic, and gradually since that time, it was difficult to conduct in-person or survey research with our patients. Fewer clinic visits, fewer in-person interactions, and less trust in the medical field by prospective subjects/patients.
