The Biological Technologies Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting covering the new Detect It with Gene Editing Technologies (DIGET) program. DIGET aims to incorporate gene editors into detectors for distributed health biosurveillance and rapid, point-of-need diagnostics for endemic, emerging, and engineered pathogenic threats. The DIGET vision incorporates two devices: a handheld, disposable point-of-need device that screens samples for at least 10 pathogens or host biomarkers at once, combined with a massively multiplexed detection platform capable of screening clinical and environmental samples for more than 1,000 targets simultaneously.
Additional details, including registration instructions, are available at https://go.usa.gov/xpkce. The registration deadline is December 2, 2019, at 12:00 PM EST or when capacity is reached.
Please address administrative questions to DARPA-SNemail@example.com and refer to the DIGET Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-20-12) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the DIGET Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
DARPA anticipates sharing additional program details in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement to be posted to the https://beta.sam.gov/ website.
