Brigham, Broad Institute team to test 10,000 people in at-home coronavirus study called TestBoston

Officials said the study will seek to detect active coronavirus cases, evidence of previous infections, and changes in the rates of both in a representative group of 10,000 Brigham patients consistent with the demographics of Greater Boston.

Over the course of six months, the statement said, study participants will get monthly at-home kits for viral and anti-body testing. They’ll also complete routine symptom surveys and will be able to seek additional testing should they develop symptoms, officials said.

Ongoing study results, the statement said, could reveal “critical clues” and warning signs about how COVID-19 cases are changing in the Boston area, while also helping researchers set up a model for at-home sample collection that’s “integrated” within a medical and public health system.

In addition, the study will help clinicians learn more about whether prior infection protects someone from future reinfection, according to the statement.

TestBoston will be led by Dr.
