Rising to the COVID-19 Challenge: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx)Posted on April 29th, 2020 by Dr. Francis CollinsCredit: NIHStep into any major medical center, and you will see the amazing power of technology at work. I’m convinced that biomedical technology has a vital role to play in this urgent effort, which is why the NIH today launched the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) Initiative. A key part of this effort, which started today, will be a national technology development competition that’s open to all comers. Those testing technologies that succeed in making it to Phase 2 will receive an appropriate budget to enable full clinical deployment on an accelerated timeline. RADx is focused on diagnostic testing, but NIH is also intensely engaged in developing safe, effective therapies and vaccines for COVID-19.
