Consider influencing the future of the Society by running for election to the SPR Nominating Committee. Five (5) elected members will be selected by the membership to serve on the Committee. The leadership will assign the elected members to a one-, two-, or three-year term*. Each year, the responsibility of the Committee is to develop the slate of officers to be voted on by the Members. To nominate an SPR member (including yourself) to serve on the Nominating Committee (the committee that identifies the next leaders of the Society), eligible members (Active, Allied, Emeritus, and Honorary) are asked to submit this online nomination form.
As mentioned, self-nomination is encouraged. Please keep the following in mind as you consider potential nominees:
*The membership will vote on a set of proposed bylaws amendments this spring. One of the amendments is to increase the Nominating Committee's size, taking it from six elected members and the chair to nine elected members and the chair. In anticipation of member approval, the Nominating Committee roster accounts for the three additional elected members and staggering terms.
**This criterion is also a forthcoming proposed bylaws amendments and included in anticipation of member approval. The goal is to ensure that the Committee has a continuous pipeline of new members, increasing member representation.

On April 29, 2020, the NIH launched the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) Initiative. For more information, access the following URL: https://directorsblog.nih.gov/2020/04/29/rising-to-the-covid-19-challenge-rapid-acceleration-of-diagnostics-radx/.
Regarding NIBIB and opportunities with the RADx initiative:
NIBIB expects to receive between 200-500 inquiries. translating to roughly 100 applications and, down the line, roughly five “outstanding, promising” approaches that the NIH could move to commercialize. The project is focused only on tests to diagnose Covid-19 in patients who are currently sick, not on serological tests that determine whether an individual carries antibodies that indicate they were previously infected with coronavirus.
The existing NIH-sponsored diagnostic development centers (POCTRN) will evaluate proposals and pair approved teams with experts in technology, regulatory approval, commercialization, and manufacturing to speed their progress. Proposals can use any technology to detect an active infection and will be evaluated for their likely success in improving testing performance—qualities such as speed, reliability, and accuracy—and ease of use, such as detecting the virus in saliva or exhaled breath.
This is a designated email to send inquiries which will be triaged and responded to quickly. RADxNIBIB@mail.nih.gov
NIBIB has a webpage about RADx and other opportunities related to COVID-19: https://www.nibib.nih.gov/nibib-response-covid-19

RESEARCH RELIEF TODAY!
Tell Congress to provide research relief for laboratories.
Congress is currently negotiating the next package to provide economic relief from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Although this will be a massive funding effort, it does not currently include relief for biomedical research facilities that were slowed or shuttered in response to the pandemic. It is imperative that you make your elected leaders aware of this omission and urge them to include support the National Institutes of Health in the forthcoming package.
Below is our "Take Action" button that will lead you to a recommended letter and tweet that you are encouraged to personalize with your own story of pandemic-related impacts to your research—note there are placeholders for you to insert your own story, and we certainly encourage you to do so. In addition, the Academy is working with our coalition partners and will be contacting Capitol Hill as well. See the "Learn More" tab on our Take Action page for additional documents from our partners.
