ORD Supports Future ARPA-H Performers and Program Managers

The Office of Research, through efforts centered in the Office of Research Development (ORD), is actively supporting Emory’s future Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) performers and those interested in serving as Program Managers to ARPA-H.

Faculty interested in research development support can reach out to ORD as they plan submissions to the newly released agency-wide Open-Office Broad Agency Announcement (BAA). This program is seeking funding proposals for research aiming to improve health outcomes across patient populations, communities, diseases, and health conditions. The BAA calls for proposals to outline breakthrough research and technological advancements. Proposals should investigate unconventional approaches, and challenge accepted assumptions to enable leaps forward in science, technology, systems, or related capabilities. We also encourage concepts to advance the objectives of President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot, as well as more disease-agnostic approaches. ARPA-H’s four initial focus areas are still: (1) Health Science Futures; (2) Scalable Solutions; (3) Proactive Health;  (4) Resilient Systems.

The Office of Research Development can support faculty interest via departmental presentations, as well as one-on-one virtual meetings.  Faculty interested in discussing ARPA-H research development support can contact the office at ResearchDevelopment@emory.edu.  Faculty interested in the possibility of serving as an APRA-H Program Manager should reach out to Kimberly Eck, PhD, Associate Vice President for Research at keck@emory.edu.

Faculty should also be on the lookout for a second round of ARPA-H seed funding set for release in Fall of 2023.
