Collaborators Needed: Point-of-care Microsystems-based Diagnostics for Cardiac, Pulmonary, Hematologic, &/or Sleep Disorders-Due Tuesday

Members of the Georgia CTSA are jointly applying for an NIH center grant that will fund investigators to conduct clinical needs assessments for, technologically refine, and clinically validate novel point-of-care (POC) microsystems-based diagnostics specifically for cardiac, pulmonary, hematologic and/or sleep disorders.

Accordingly, if you are developing a POC microsystems technology designed to detect, prevent, or treat heart, lung, blood and/or sleep disorders and it has surpassed the proof-of-concept stages (i.e. ready for clinical validation and/or human testing) and are interested in applying for funding within our center (up to $100K for 1 year) please complete this short online survey by Tuesday, October 3, 2017.

As a national resource, investigators from anywhere in the nation are eligible. If you have any questions, please email one of the center PI’s listed below.
