U. of Washington Lands $9.6M DoD Award

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The University of Washington has landed a $9.6 million award from the US Department of Defense.

The award is a modification to a cooperative agreement, DoD said, adding the work being done from the award is "part of the autonomous diagnostics to enable prevention and therapeutics (ADEPT) program, which seeks an advanced instrument-free analytical platform capable of performing a wide range of nucleic acid amplification tests at low cost anywhere and with little or no user training."

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is the contracting agency, and the work is anticipated to be completed by August 2014.
