By Staff

A recently established agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will boost biomedical and health solutions research, potentially providing funding for University of Colorado researchers. To share information about the opportunities, the four CU campuses are co-hosting a virtual town hall meeting from noon to 1 p.m. May 3.

The Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) supports transformative research to drive biomedical and health breakthroughs – ranging from molecular to societal – to provide transformative health solutions for all.

ARPA-H recently opened its first agency-wide Open Broad Agency Announcement (Open BAA), 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.

Wednesday’s informational session is open to anyone interested in learning more. Register for the Zoom event here:

In addition to an overview of ARPA-H, the Open BAA, which is the agency’s new funding mechanism, also will be discussed, along with insights from expert panel members.
