Welcome to the website of the Gutenberg Long COVID Study!


Not only did the COVID-19 pandemic bring the new, acute COVID-19 disease, but also the late symptoms following a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection, the "long COVID syndrome".

The multiple health and socioeconomic implications of this new syndrome are complex and not yet adequately understood. A deep understanding is required for adequate diagnosis and therapy. The University Medical Center Mainz (UM) addresses the high need for research with the interdisciplinary "Gutenberg Long COVID Study". The results should also enable the development of an evidence-based, interdisciplinary care model.

Therefore, the aim of this study is to examine individuals with past SARS-CoV-2 infection regarding effects and late effects in order to gain a deeper understanding of Long COVID.
