ARPA-H: Breakthroughs in Human Health


ARPA-H is a uniquely positioned government agency, founded by President Biden, for a singular purpose: to drive breakthroughs in health, including the prevention, detection and treatment of diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. The inaugural director, Renee Wegrzyn, hopes to return this year to engage with SXSW's audience about the exciting new line-up of announcements from the agency.

The session can be modular, but we'd like to give a portfolio review of the innovative breakthrough programs our PMs have launched & the network model that we've implemented.
