NEW: NIA-Supported COVID-19 Research Opportunities

Special Alert: COVID-19 Research Opportunities

NIA is excited to support the launch of Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics, or RADx, to catalyze the scientific community to improve COVID-19 testing technologies, capacity, and accessibility. As one of the four RADx components, RADx-Underserved Populations (RADx-UP) will establish a network of community-engaged projects to improve access to and acceptance of testing in underserved and vulnerable populations.

As part of the RADx-UP initiative, NIH has released four funding opportunities for research on COVID-19 testing among underserved and/or vulnerable populations to both understand and close the disparity gap. NIA has signed on to participate in all four of these initiatives. These funding opportunities include:

Applications for this first phase will be accepted through August 2020 for FY20 funding. A second phase will be staggered to provide flexibility and to allow for adaption to the ever-changing needs that may be present as this pandemic evolves.
