Researchers “Test the Tests” to Help Combat the Spread of Covid-19

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, gaining access to accurate, timely testing has been a struggle for many Americans. To remedy this, a team of researchers from Georgia Tech, Emory University, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are working together with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration to “test the tests” to ensure exiting tests are accurate and help accelerate the development of new ones.
