 Press Releases

  • The RECOVER initiative will bring together tens of thousands of research participants across the United States in an effort to answer important questions about the long-term effects of COVID-19

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.— The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently announced a new initiative, Researching COVID to Enhance Recovery (RECOVER), to further understand post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV2 (PASC) – a term used to describe the longer term effects of infection with SARS-CoV-2, including persistent or relapsing symptoms which is often called ‘Long COVID’. RTI International, a nonprofit research institute, is serving as the Administrative Coordinating Center for RECOVER by supporting a series of strategic activities, with the goal of helping NIH to further understand the effects, treatment, and prevention of PASC, including Long COVID.


  • Follow-up survey finds that in the U.S., Black people, women, and parents with young children had sustained increases in alcohol consumption amid pandemic

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — A second wave of results from a study conducted by RTI International, a nonprofit research institute, has found that increases in alcohol consumption observed at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, including excessive consumption, were sustained through at least November 2020.

    Compared with February 2020, alcohol consumption in November 2020 was 39% higher, according to the new data, in terms of drinks per month. The first wave of the survey, conducted last year and sponsored by RTI, examined changes between February and April 2020 and revealed an increase of 36% in that timeframe.


  • To understand the how and why of rising rates of Black youth suicide, researchers call for a “Ground Zero” approach

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — While little research exists on how and why the rates of Black youth suicide are rising, research does show the rate of suicide in Black youth younger than 13 years of age is approximately two times higher compared to white peers. From 2009 to 2019, the percentages of Black youth who considered suicide, made a suicide plan and attempted suicide all increased.

    In a statement published in JAMA Pediatrics, researchers at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and RTI International responded to a call from the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) requesting information on how to prevent Black youth suicide. The researchers emphasize the need for research and action on suicide prevention among Black youth to start from the ground up.


  • A study of people in San Francisco reveals a precipitous drop in number of injections, which could reduce infectious disease risk

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — A new study by researchers at RTI International, the University of California San Diego, and the University of Southern California suggests that people in California who use drugs are injecting heroin less frequently, preferring to smoke fentanyl instead.

    The two-year observational study of 395 people in San Francisco assessed changes in injection frequency, opioid injection frequency, and fentanyl smoking frequency in four, six-month periods. The median number of monthly injections was 17 in a six-month span from January to June 2020—a steep decline from the median of 92 monthly injections reported from July to December 2018.


  • Findings from RTI’s Clean Water for Carolina Kids program pointed to the need for a revision to lead standards for drinking water

    RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — A bill passed in North Carolina revises the definition of a “lead poisoning hazard” from 15 to 10 parts per billion and updates the state’s childhood lead poisoning prevention law, which is designed to ensure that young children and pregnant women are better protected from the risks of lead exposure. The revision comes in the wake of findings from RTI International’s Clean Water for Carolina Kids Program that stricter lead standards in drinking water would benefit children in North Carolina.

    Of the more than 3,000 centers that have participated in the program since June 2020, approximately 9% have one or more taps at or above 15 parts per billion, the prior lead hazard level. An additional 3.5% of centers had a tap at or above 10 parts per billion, but below 15 parts per billion, which under the old standards did not necessitate action to reduce lead levels.



  • MetaMatchMaker
    MetaMatchMaker is a machine learning application suite that helps researchers speed up the process of getting data ready for analysis. By removing the burden of data harmonization, MetaMatchMaker allows researchers to get to discoveries faster....

  • Spend less time searching for, accessing, and integrating data, and more time making discoveries. 
    A typical big data study spends anywhere from 35-80% of its budget for data discovery and integration—all before any analysis can be done. But there is a better way: MetaMatchMaker uses natural language processing in machine learning to help automate data discovery, accessing data, and data linkage. Using a recent paradigm shift in AI called transfer learning, MetaMatchMaker can be adapted to new domains quickly and cheaply so you can:
    • Integrate data from multiple studies
    • Submit and share data easily
    • Reduce the amount of time spent on data harmonization
    • Get to the analysis phase of your study faster
    See how you can reduce the time, effort, and cost of data harmonization in your studies. Learn more about MetaMatchMaker today.
