Partnering for Impact

Partnering for Impact is a RADx-UP initiative to support the preparation of consortial publications. This process includes a set of steps and support mechanisms for the development, preparation, and review of scholarly products (abstracts, scientific presentations, manuscripts) derived from information and data aggregated from RADx-UP research project teams.
