December 7 at 10:30 am EST | Maximizing the Potential of the New Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) 

This session will open with a conversation with Representative Anna Eshoo, followed by a panel discussion on ARPA-H.

The signature achievements of the federal Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are well known. Among them were early iterations of the internet, wireless communication, speech recognition, and global positioning systems. More than a decade of advocacy for a similar agency targeting high-risk, high-reward innovations in health has borne fruit in the creation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) in 2022. What problems should this new entity focus on solving? How should ARPA-H be structured if it is to achieve the same quality of breakthroughs as DARPA?
