The National Institute of #Biomedical #Imaging and Bioengineering (#NIBIB) is urgently soliciting proposals and can provide up to $500M across multiple projects to rapidly produce innovative SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests that will assist the public’s safe return to normal activities.
Rapid Acceleration of #Diagnostics (#RADx), is a fast-track technology development program that leverages the National Institutes of Health (#NIH) Point-of-Care Technology Research Network #POCTRNN).
RADx will support novel solutions that build the #USA capacity for SARS-CoV-2 testing up to 100-fold above what is achievable with #standard approaches.
RADx is structured to deliver innovative testing strategies to the public as soon as late summer 2020 and is an accelerated and comprehensive multi-pronged effort by NIH to make #SARSCoV2 testing readily available to every American.
There will be a rolling submission and selection process beginning April 29, 2020 to further notice.
