Washington Post: Biden has proposed a new agency to turbocharge medical treatments. But there’s a fight over where it should live.. “There’s at least one proposal left over from the Trump administration that President Biden is set on reviving: the creation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Under the administration’s debut budget proposal, the National Institutes of Health would receive $6.5 billion to launch an agency modeled after the military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). ARPA-H would accelerate the development of medical treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease and more.”
