seeking submissions

The U.S. government is providing a portal for the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) medical countermeasures task force as a single point of entry for the submission of market research packages and meeting requests from interested stakeholders.

The U.S. government, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, seeks information from stakeholders on available medical countermeasures in development. We are particularly interested in products and technologies that have progressed into or beyond clinical trials, have established large-scale cGMP manufacturing capability, or utilize an approved platform. Information regarding diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines, and other products or technologies relevant to addressing this outbreak are sought.

We ask for a brief description of your product or technology, accompanied by a slide deck, manuscript, publications, or other non-confidential information of your choosing. Please note that while we will use any information you present as market research, submission is no guarantee of a meeting or funding and your submission will be shared across U.S. Government agencies involved in COVID-19 medical countermeasure research and development. Only U.S. government officials are invited to join a CoronaWatch meeting, and are bound by law to maintain confidentiality of what is presented and discussed.

  • Relevant to the U.S. government COVID-19 medical countermeasure research and development efforts and/or Emerging Infectious Disease rapid response capabilities 
  • Utilize an already-approved platform, have non-clinical data suggesting efficacy, and/or have significant manufacturing capability
  • Fully owned or licensed by your organization (you have full IP rights and/or freedom to operate)
