Research Development Office Seeding Ideas Event: ARPA-H

April 4, 2023
8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC; Medical Campus)

Hosted by the WashU Research Development Office (RDO)

There is a new federal agency funding biomedical research – the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Details can be found at and by listening to the 2023 Researcher Forum webinar.

To help Washington University prepare for ARPA-H funding, the Research Development Office is hosting a “Seeding Ideas” at EPNEC on the School of Medicine Campus to generate project ideas and teams for future ARPA-H funding. Participation across a variety of schools, departments, and disciplines is strongly encouraged.

Space is limited.

This professionally facilitated, interactive event will promote “out of the box” discussion, collaboration, and development of project pitches for anticipated ARPA-H multi-million dollar programs. All participants are expected to gain:

  • a unique team building experience to develop ARPA-H projects;
  • knowledge on how to pitch an ARPA-H project (Hint – It’s different than NIH!); and
  • an opportunity to meet new collaborators across the University.

Participants should be committed to attending the entire event and have a willingness to collaborate across disciplines. If capacity is reached, participants will be selected on a first come-first serve basis by department, school, or discipline to ensure diverse participation across the University.
