Funding Opportunity for Molecular TB Assay Developers

Dear all,

We would like to inform you about an opportunity to apply for funding to advance the development of oral swab-based TB assays on already-existing point-of-care (POC) molecular platforms.

The Supporting, Mobilizing and Accelerating Research for Tuberculosis Elimination (SMART4TB) consortium, with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is inviting diagnostic developers to submit applications to the request for applications (RFA). By March 15, 2023, applications can be submitted via the web portal: POC TB Diagnostic RFA | UCSF Center for TB

Please do not hesitate to contact me ( with any questions.

Many thanks…
