Microscopic view of the COVID-19 virus

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

NIBIB is overseeing the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostic Technologies (RADx℠ Tech) program, a $500 million effort to significantly increase testing capacity and accessibility for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.  In addition to this major effort, NIBIB is supporting several areas of technology development outlined in three Notices of Special Interest (NOSIs).
