COVID-19 Funding Opportunities
The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering is soliciting proposals for projects to produce innovative SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic tests that will assist the public’s safe return to normal activities. The Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) program will utilize $1.5 billion from the CARES Act. The program leverages the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Point-of-Care Technology Research Network (POCTRN). POCTRN can provide up to $500M across multiple projects. Projects will proceed through a "Shark Tank-like" rapid selection process and then through further review.
