Danilo Tagle's Biography



Danilo Tagle, Director, Office of Special Initiatives, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences at the NIH (NCATS)

Danilo Tagle is currently Director, Office of Special Initiatives at the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) where he coordinates efforts towards developing microphysiological systems or organs on chips. He also coordinates efforts on 3D bioprinting for drug discovery and development, on automated chemistry, on the use of electronic nose technology for disease diagnosis, and the clinical utility of secreted RNA in exosomes for biomarker and therapy development. Prior to joining NCATS in 2012, Dan was a program director for neurogenetics at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS, NIH), where he was involved in developing programs concerning genomics-based approaches for basic and translational research in inherited brain disorders. Prior to joining NINDS in 2001, Dan was an investigator and section head of molecular neurogenetics at the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI, NIH) and has been involved in the highly collaborative effort toward the positional cloning of genes for Huntington’s disease, ataxia-telangiectasia and Niemann-Pick disease type C. He has served on numerous committees, advisory boards, and editorial boards. Dan obtained his Ph.D. in molecular biology and genetics from Wayne State University School of Medicine in 1990. He was an NIH National Research Service Award postdoctoral fellow in human genetics at the University of Michigan. Dan has authored many scientific publications and has garnered numerous awards, including more recently the Roscoe O. Brady Award for Innovation and Accomplishment, and the Henry J. Heimlich Award for Innovative Medicine.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) launched the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) initiative to meet the needs for COVID-19 diagnostic and surveillance testing, and also to speed its innovation in the development, commercialization, and implementation of new technologies and approaches. The RADx Radical (RADx-rad) initiative is one component of the RADx program which focuses on the development of new, or non-traditional applications of existing approaches, to enhance their usability, accessibility, and/or accuracy for the detection of SARS-CoV-2.  This presentation will elaborate on two RADx rad programs led by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences on 1) pivoting technologies being developed for the isolation of exosomes towards screening and detection for SARS-CoV-2 viral infection due to the similar physical and chemical properties between exosomes and SARS-CoV-2 virus; and 2) developing novel biosensing capabilities using electronic nose technologies to detect unique signatures of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of those with COVID-19 (Screening for COVID-19 by Electronic-Nose Technology (SCENT)).
