The National Institutes of Health will advance the development of home-based and point-of-care health technologies with awards to six technology research and development centers around the country. The centers comprise the Point of Care Technology Research Network (POCTRN) and will parlay the momentum of the original network established in 2007 by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). In the first year of the new five-year grant period, these six centers will share $9.6 million in total awards.
POCTRN and COVID-19
In response to COVID-19 pandemic, POCTRN has helped to launch the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) initiative 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. We have also curated a number resources and additional funding opportunities on our resources page.
