Our foundational partnership is with the United States Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Equipped with $2.5 billion in federal dollars, ARPA-H is funding the research and development of new ways to tackle the hardest problems in health, including cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease. We are working directly with ARPA-H’s Project Accelerator Transition Office (PATIO) to bring our deep commercialization expertise and extensive network in the field of human health to support navigation through the regulatory, intellectual property, and market hurdles that can slow the delivery of innovative solutions to patients who need them.

This blend of private sector knowledge and public sector goods is designed to expedite the transition of groundbreaking discoveries from the lab to the real world.

We are always looking for experts to serve as business advisors to ARPA-H programs. If you are an entrepreneur, investor, or industry expert who is interested in helping guide these technologies to market, please contact us at
