On Friday, June 25, 2021, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Director Dr. Eric Lander, National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins will host an event to discuss their vision for a new science entity, the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Included in the President’s fiscal year 2022 budget as a component of NIH with a requested funding level of $6.5 billion, ARPA-H would focus on time-limited projects with goals, benchmarks, and accountability to revolutionize how we prevent, treat, or cure a range of diseases, including cancer, infectious diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, and others. Projects supported by ARPA-H would focus on solving practical problems that foster breakthroughs to serve patients equitably—at levels ranging from the molecular to the societal—and drive them to the point of adoption.
