Research Funding

News on research grants, RFPs, government funding trends in genetics, genomics, and molecular diagnostics.

The new funding opportunities come as part of the NIH's Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics program, which aims to support SARS-CoV-2 testing technologies. 

The test will comprise a smartphone-powered single-use, disposable device that detects active SARS-CoV-2 infection based on the presence of viral proteins.

The lawmakers requested the secretary to direct money from the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund to support clinical labs.

The winners will each get a sample set from AACC's Universal Sample Bank, which has blood samples from healthy individuals collected to help medical studies.

The research group said its test has the potential to boost limits of detection one hundredfold over ELISA platforms in testing for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.
