The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has created a new entity, the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H), which mirrors DARPA but with significant differences.  ARPA-H’s first open BAA was released in March 2023, with abstracts due March 2024.  In this workshop, James Murday will describe the current status of the ARPA-H organization, present strategies to craft a winning proposal for the BAA, and inform you about other ARPA-H programs, followed by a Q&A with USC faculty who’ve been successful in competitions with other Agency ARPAs.


James Murday, Director Of Physical Sciences, Research Strategy and Development


- Adam Russell, Director of AI Division, Information Sciences Institute; Former Acting Deputy Director of ARPA-H
- Yolanda Gil, Research Professor of Computer Science and of Spatial Sciences; Director for Major Strategic AI and Data Science Initiatives; Director of Knowledge Technologies; Principal Scientist, USC Viterbi Information Sciences Institute
- Sergey Nuzhdin, Professor of Biological Sciences, Dornsife Molecular & Computational Biology, USC Dornsife


This workshop is organized by the USC Research and Innovation (R&I)’s Center for Excellence in Research and administered by the Research Initiatives and Infrastructure (RII) office. Contact usccer@usc.edu with any questions.
