Abstract: This brief report collects the program and abstracts of the Society on NeuroImmune Pharmacology (SNIP) COVID-19 Virtual Workshop held on April 9, 2021. The workshop consisted of four symposia: Symposium 1: Molecular approaches to COVID-19 pathogenesis and underlying mechanisms; Symposium 2: Therapeutic and vaccine approaches to COVID-19; Symposium 3: Early Career Investigator talks; and Symposium 4: Diversity and Inclusion SNIP Committee (DISC) program: Well-being and reflections. The workshop also featured four special talks on COVID-19 and funding opportunities from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA); COVID-19 and funding opportunities from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA); opportunities from NIH for early career investigator (ECI) fellows; and neurologic and psychiatric complications of SARS-CoV-2 infection. Presenters included NIH officials, SNIP members, and non-member scientists whose abstracts were submitted and accepted for inclusion in the virtual event hosted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center via Zoom webinar. A special theme issue of SNIP's official journal, the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology (JNIP), will collect select papers from the workshop along with other related manuscripts in a special theme issue titled "Neuroimmune Pharmacology of SARS-CoV-2.” Graphical abstract: [Figure not available: see fulltext.]
