COVID-19 @ NIBIB

NIBIB's goal is to accelerate research, translation, and commercialization of technologies that will provide solutions to the COVID-19 pandemic.

NIBIB is administering the RADx® Tech and Advanced Technology Platforms (ATP) programs. These programs are part of the NIH RADx® Initiative to increase testing capacity and accessibility for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID. In addition, NIBIB is supporting other technology development, imaging approaches, and digital platforms to address the pandemic.

Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx®) Tech and ATP Programs

The RADx® Tech and ATP programs are supporting late-stage development of innovative point-of-care, home-based tests, and clinical laboratory tests.

Summary data on proposals submitted to the RADx® Tech and ATP Programs.

Descriptions of innovative point of care, home-based, improved clinical laboratory tests, and testing products that are increasing the capacity of testing in the U.S.

COVID-19 Research across NIBIB

NIBIB’s Dr. Kaitlyn Sadtler is a study lead and Principal Investigator working with NIH colleagues to test people who were infected with SARS-CoV-2 and developed antibodies but did not develop symptoms. Read about results from this study.

Lung autopsy and plasma samples from people who died of COVID-19 have provided a clearer picture of how the SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads and damages lung tissue. NIH scientists and their collaborators say the information, published in Science Translational Medicine, could help predict severe and prolonged COVID-19 cases, particularly among high-risk people, and inform effective treatments.

The NIH RADx initiative announced today that it has issued contract awards totaling $77.7 million to develop and manufacture 12 new rapid diagnostic tests for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The home and point-of-care testing platforms target the need for high-performance, low-cost home tests and point-of-care tests that can potentially detect multiple respiratory infections.
