NIH has issued a Request for Information seeking public input on current COVID-19 surveillance testing capabilities at universities, and the potential for university-based networks (including universities, colleges, community colleges, satellite campuses, or other higher education institutions) to:
- Jointly deploy existing equipment and staff to develop robust SARS-CoV-2 surveillance testing for their students, faculty and staff, and possibly for other critical institutions in their local communities.
- Share knowledge and testing infrastructure; efficiently distribute testing capacity among the institutions.
- Collaborate with other university-based networks to rapidly learn from protocols, approaches, and challenges, and optimize operations.
All comments must be submitted electronically on the submission website. Responses must be received by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on August 26, 2020.
Please direct all inquiries to: RADxInfo@nih.gov.
