Long Covid: A Crisis for Neurology

Long COVID presents with a multitude of heterogeneous symptoms predominantly neurological in nature. It poses major challenges in the diagnosis and treatment. The pathological corelates and underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. This talk will describe our current knowledge of the illness and the opportunities for research that could have a major impact on this and related illnesses.

RADx Tech Accessible Tests Program: Best Practices 

Since the Spring of 2022, RADx Tech has been working to make COVID-19 home tests more accessible (our previous webinar addressed these efforts). During this work, the team has also captured what we've learned (from knowledgeable evaluators, designers, SMEs and vendors in the field) in a best practices document. While a comprehensive document is anticipated this Spring, an early edition of these best practices, with insights so far, was published in December, with support from NIH, on the US Access Board website site. While it is based on COVID test development, we hope it will have future applications across the field of home test design.

COVID Vaccines: Immunity and Variants

The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed an estimated 15 million lives, including more than 1 million lives in the United States alone. The rapid development of multiple COVID-19 vaccines has been a triumph of biomedical research, and billions of vaccine doses have been administered worldwide. Join this webinar to learn about the current state of knowledge about immune responses to COVID-19 vaccines and the importance of both humoral and cellular immunity for durable protection against severe disease.

RADx Tech Accessible Tests Program

In the Spring of 2022, RADx Tech launched a new program aimed at making COVID-19 home tests more accessible. The program applied the RADx Tech process to evaluate and support test companies, but at the same time, required new unique resources and capabilities. Learn about this program’s origin, stakeholders, and the process that is delivering results.
