- The impact of COVID-19 on infant development: A special issue of infancy
- Lessons from COVID-19 for improving diagnostic access in future pandemics: The use cases for testing have evolved over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, with a shift from identifying individual cases to population-level surveillance. While some gaps in testing remain, the development of new tests and improved access to testing have helped to meet public health needs.
- Emerging heterologous mRNA-based booster strategies within the COVID-19 vaccine landscape: The mRNA-based vaccine platforms used for the development of mRNA-1273 and BNT162b2 are adaptable and offer protection against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). However, as variants of concern (VoCs), such as omicron and associated sub-variants, emerge, boosting strategies must also adapt to keep pace with the changing landscape.
- An integrated LSTM-HeteroRGNN model for interpretable opioid overdose risk prediction: Deep learning can be used to predict opioid overdoses, but the complex relationships among EHR data can make it difficult to build accurate models.
- The Impact of COVID-19 on Transportation of Adults With Visual Impairments: The COVID-19 pandemic has made transportation more difficult for people with vision loss.
- Modification of Lifestyle to Recover from Post-COVID Symptoms: A Short Review: Lifestyle modification is an important and cost-effective way to manage symptoms of post-COVID.
- Public use of ‘Your COVID Recovery(R)’ a website designed to help individuals manage their COVID recovery: Observational study: The Your COVID Recovery website was launched by NHS England in July 2020 with the aim of providing advice and support to individuals recovering from COVID-19. The website provides information on symptoms, self-care, and seeking medical help, as well as a symptom tracker and a forum for users to share their experiences.

- Large interfacial relocation in RBD-ACE2 complex may explain fast-spreading property of Omicron: The Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 emerged in South African in late 2021. This variant has a large number of mutations, and regarded as fastest-spreading Covid variant. The spike RBD region of SARS-CoV-2 and its interaction with human ACE2 play fundamental role in viral infection and transmission.
- The influence of new SARS-CoV-2 variant Omicron (B.1.1.529) on vaccine efficacy, its correlation to Delta variants: A computational approach: The newly discovered COVID variant B.1.1.529 in Botswana has more than 30 mutations in spike and many other in non-spike proteins, far more than any other SARS-CoV-2 variant accepted as a variant of concern by the WHO and officially named Omicron, and has sparked concern among scientists and the general public. Our findings provide insights into structural modification caused by the mutations in the Omicrons receptor-binding domain and look into the effects on interaction with the hosts neutralizing antibodies.
