MGH COVID-19 study data

Researchers from the MGH have measured over 1400 proteins in 306 COVID-19 patients and 78 control subjects. In collaboration with Olink, the protein data and some associated clinical data are now being made available to the wider research community. Please note: The clinical dataset is restricted due to data protection considerations and does not include information on gender or race etc.

  • Largest-scale proteomics study to date on COVID-19 samples

  • Carried out using Olink Explore 1536, Olink's new PEA platform with NGS readout
