Endocrine Society Comments on ARPA-H

July 16, 2021

Dear Representatives DeGette and Upton:

"The Endocrine Society appreciates the opportunity to comment on the establishment of the new Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H). Founded in 1916, the Endocrine Society is the world’s oldest, largest, and most active organization dedicated to research on hormones and the clinical treatment of patients with endocrine diseases. Our members include basic and clinical researchers advancing our understanding of endocrine systems and developing new therapies and innovative devices, as well as clinicians who apply new discoveries in endocrine science to improve patient care. We welcome the Biden Administration and Congress’ efforts to drive transformational innovation to improve public health, and we appreciate your engagement as the ARPA-H initiative takes shape. In our comments we address several of the questions posed in the RFI, and we also propose additional considerations that Congress, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) should evaluate as ARPA-H takes shape."
