Rapid Screening Tests for SARS-CoV-2 (Darnell)

A major clinical issue has been the failure to deploy rapid, reliable and highly scalable methods to diagnose SARS-CoV-2 infection. Physician-scientist Bob Darnell is working on new methods to rapidly diagnose infection and develop a model by which patients could potentially do simple at-home sample collection that can be sent in for testing. The rapid testing can be up and running in weeks, which will also be important for quickly identifying members of our local workforce who have acquired infection, preventing spread of infection among essential employees on campus. This effort will be able to integrate with and enable the studies of JL Casanova (see below), using analysis of at-risk individuals from NYC.
