RADx Up Webinar - POCTRN

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the RADx program was formed to accelerate the development, validation, and commercialization of innovative point-of-care and home-based tests, as well as improvements to clinical laboratory tests, that can directly detect SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

RADx-UP Funding Opportunities and Webinar


The mission of the RADx Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) initiative is to understand the factors associated with disparities in COVID-19 morbidity and mortality and to lay the foundation to reduce disparities for those underserved and vulnerable populations who are disproportionately affected by, have the highest infection rates of, and/or are most at risk for complications or poor outcomes from the COVID-19 pandemic. The following funding opportunities have been issued for RADx-UP.

Limited Competition for Emergency Competitive Revisions for Community-Engaged Research on COVID-19 Testing among Underserved and/or Vulnerable Populations 
NOT-OD-20-121 

Emergency Competitive Revisions for Community-Engaged Research on COVID-19 Testing among Underserved and/or Vulnerable Populations 
NOT-OD-20-120

Emergency Competitive Revisions for Social, Ethical, and Behavioral Implications (SEBI) Research on COVID-19 Testing among Underserved and/or Vulnerable Populations 
NOT-OD-20-119

Emergency Awards: RADx-UP Coordination and Data Collection Center (CDCC) (U24 Clinical Trial Optional) 
RFA-OD-20-013

A webinar on the RADx-UP initiative and funding opportunities is being held June 25 at 2:00 pm EDT and July 1 at 3:00 pm EDT. Join a pre-application webinar to learn more at https://www.nih.gov/research-training/medical-research-initiatives/radx/events
