The Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) supports the development of high-impact research to drive biomedical and health breakthroughs to deliver transformative, sustainable, and equitable health solutions for everyone.* ARPA-H’s mission focuses on leveraging research advances for real world impact.
ARPA-H advances high-potential, high-impact biomedical and health research that cannot be readily accomplished through traditional research or commercial activity. ARPA-H awardees are developing entirely new ways to tackle the hardest challenges in health. The ARPA model enables visionary Program Managers to tackle a specific problem, working with a range of performers and a variety of approaches to solve that problem, while incorporating measurement and evaluation throughout the process. Program Managers serve for limited terms to ensure a constant infusion of fresh thinking and new perspectives.
ARPA-H is collaborative, spirited, and driven by a commitment to accelerating life-changing health solutions. ARPA-H staff embody teamwork, mutual respect, and dedication to diversity in all its forms. If this sounds like the environment for you, check out the opportunities to work with ARPA-H.
