Now Accepting Applications: POCTRN Solicitation 2021 - Now Accepting Applications: POCTRN Solicitation 2021 - POCTRN
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADxsm) initiative 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.
Now Accepting Applications: POCTRN Solicitation 2021
Do you have a promising point-of-care medical technology in need of further development? The NIH’s Point-of-Care Technology Research Network (POCTRN) drives the development of point-of-care technologies through collaborative efforts that merge scientific and technological capabilities with clinical need.
We are pleased to announce new funding opportunities from our centers:
- Microfluidics/Lab-on-a-Chip Point-of-Care Technologies - Expressions of Interest are due March 15, 2021.
Atlanta Center for Microsystems Engineered Point-of-Care Technologies
- Development of Point-Of-Care Testing for HIV and Co-Morbidities for Use in Low and Middle Income Countries -Expressions of Interest are due March 15, 2021
The Center for Innovation in Point of Care Technologies for HIV/AIDS at Northwestern
- Center for Advancing Point of Care Technologies in Heart, Lung, Blood and Sleep Disorders: Funding Opportunity - Expressions of Interest are due March 1, 2021.
Center for Advancing Point of Care Technologies in Heart, Lung, Blood, and Sleep Disorders
- Johns Hopkins University Center for Point of Care Technologies Research for Sexually Transmitted Diseases
This center will not be issuing a solicitation in 2021 but is instead approaching companies who submitted applications for COVID diagnostics through the RADx initiative to gauge their interest in pivoting their platforms to the detection of STDs.
