ARPA-H 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.
Proposals should investigate unconventional approaches, and challenge accepted assumptions to enable leaps forward in science, technology, systems, or related capabilities. ARPA-H also encourages concepts to advance the objectives of President Biden’s Cancer Moonshot, as well as more disease-agnostic approaches.
ARPA-H office directors Jennifer Roberts and Amy Jenkins are coordinating this open call.
Abstracts should be submitted through the electronic Contract Proposal Submission system.
The submission deadline for this open BAA is March 14, 2024
