ARPA-H Seed Funding

To help position Emory faculty for the launch of ARPA-H, the Office of the Sr. Vice President for Research, in consultation with the Office of the Provost, has created the ARPA-H seed funds program. These seeds are intended to lead to competitive ARPA-H proposals. In alignment with ARPA-H’s expected culture and processes, this seed funding aims to rapidly de-risk bold, revolutionary concepts in the biomedical and health sciences.

Given the unique culture of ARPA-H and its reliance on program managers to make funding decisions based on the Heilmeier Questions (and not peer review), awardees will receive tailored training and feedback on their responses to the Heilmeier Questions. During and after the conclusion of the seed project, seed recipients will work with the Office of Research Development to refine their ARPA-H pitch.
