Participate in COVID-19 Research

How To Get Tested & Support COVID-19 Research

Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta are partnering with the National Institute of Health's (NIH) Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) program to evaluate and help bring more COVID-19 tests to market.

We are looking for test samples and feedback from children and adults with COVID-19 symptoms. Participants must be 2 years of age or older. All children under the age of 18 require a guardian consent to participate. Appointments are required for all participants (click button below to schedule your appointment).

As part of this research study, you will receive a COVID-19 test, you may also receive a test kit with instructions on how to perform a test on yourself or your child. Additionally, we may ask that you give another sample that may include a nasal swab, throat swab, saliva, or blood sample (fingerstick).

Participants must be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, including:

  • fever or chills

  • cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

  • fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache

  • new loss of taste or smell

  • sore throat, congestion, or runny nose

  • nausea or vomiting, diarrhea


Each participant will receive a $50 electronic gift card for Wal-Mart or Target, a no-cost polymerase chain reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test and will be helping us in the fight against COVID-19.
