UW ARPA-H Committee
ITHS is facilitating the UW ARPA-H Committee, a visioning committee to help research leaders develop strategy and direction related to a new federal funding agency. The committee is chaired by the ITHS Executive Director Tong Sun and includes representatives from the School of Medicine, College of Engineering, and School of Pharmacy, as well as leadership of the Institute for Protein Design and Population Health Initiative. The sponsors of the committee are Jihui Yang, Vice Dean of the College of Engineering, and Shelly Sakiyama-Elbert, Vice Dean of Research and Graduate Education of the School of Medicine. The UW ARPA-H Committee will identify key opportunities for collaboration, provide feedback on abstracts and assist with team development, and socialize ARPA-H across the UW research community.
