About this Event
Please come to an in-person (Genentech Hall N114) and virtual ( Webinar link ) event on Monday, May 1 from 2:00-3:30 pm to learn about the new Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) federal agency, which seeks to identify and fund breakthrough technologies and broadly applicable platforms, capabilities, resources, and solutions that have the potential to transform important areas of medicine and health that cannot readily be accomplished through traditional research or commercial activity.
ARPA-H’s approaches to project evaluation, selection, funding and management differ dramatically from those applied by NIH, and we shall discuss how researchers can craft winning proposals. Sponsored by the Research Development Office (RDO) and the Office of Science Policy and Strategy (SPS).
