The White House Office of Science & Technology Policy (OSTP) is establishing the framework for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Health (ARPA-H) that was included in President Biden’s FY2022 budget. Modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), ARPA-H would tackle bold challenges requiring large-scale, cross-sector coordination, employing a non-traditional and nimble approach to high-risk research. Specifically, under Director Eric Lander, PhD from the Broad Institute and MIT who was sworn in as the first Cabinet level Director of OSTP on June 2, 2021, ARPA-H will advance translational science and drive transformational health innovations that tackle gaps in the system and implement health breakthroughs.
G2G is participating in efforts to contribute input to help shape how ARPA-H will function and we would love to hear your thoughts and questions you would like us to address as we continue our dialogue with the OSTP and ARPA-H leadership.
