The CCTSI responded to the pandemic by issuing a rapid-release RFA to address COVID-19. CCTSI leaders called it the COVID-19-Rapid Research Pilot Program. They released the RFA on Monday evening, March 30 and closed the application process just four days later. This new pilot grant program supported the development of novel diagnostic and treatment methods and innovative technologies related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Fifty-five people applied and the CCTSI chose four awardees. The following is a summary of what each awardee has accomplished and learned over the past 14 months.
