The association will offer research grants for fast-tracked short-term projects that can produce results within 9 months to a year to better understand the virus. There will also be additional funding for the association’s new Health Technologies & Innovation Strategically Focused Research Centers to develop rapid technology solutions.
The association will fund one national coordinating center, along with at least 10 project grants of $100,000 each.
Applications are due April 6, with awardees announced in early May and projects underway by June.s
