The RADxSM Tech program is one component of the overarching RADxSM Initiative at NIH to speed innovation in the development, commercialization, and implementation of technologies for COVID-19 testing.

NIH and POCTRN have suspended the RADxSM Fast-Track Program for COVID-19 Test Development and Distribution submission portal and are currently not accepting new applications. Those who have previously submitted complete applications that meet the eligibility criteria will be reviewed. If additional resources to support the RADxSM program become available, NIH and POCTRN may re-evaluate this decision and could consider accepting applications once again. In the meantime, those interested in the RADxSM program are encouraged to pursue other funding opportunities offered by NIH.
