ARPA–H Is Open for Business

The Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) celebrated its one-year anniversary with several big announcements, including its first call for research proposals with a broad agency announcement (BBA), the launch of the “ARPA-H Dash” competition, and the hiring of its first two program managers.  ARPA-H was created to support transformative research and development to drive biomedical and health breakthroughs – ranging from molecular to societal – to provide transformative health solutions for all. 

FABBS has been actively engaged and covering the evolution of ARPA-H since the initial conversations. While the opportunities for our sciences might not be immediately obvious, FABBS encourages researchers in the behavioral and brain sciences to take a close look at these announcements. Below are a couple of recently developed resources to learn more. Please feel free to reach out to FABBS directly ( with any questions about ARPA-H.
