This webinar is designed by the NIH Point of Care Technology Research Network (POCTRN) to provide relevant information to stakeholders interested in point-of-care technology research and development. POCTRN's goal is to develop technologies with clinical applications using a network model that enhances complementary strengths and builds multidisciplinary partnerships.
RADx: Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics
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.
