“It is critical that all Americans have access to rapid, accurate testing for COVID-19, especially underserved and vulnerable populations who are bearing the brunt of this disease. RADx-UP will help us better understand and alleviate the barriers to testing for those most vulnerable and reduce the burden of this disease on all Americans” – NIH Director Dr. Francis S. Collins. NIH RADx-UP is investing $234M to improve testing for underserved & vulnerable populations.
