An Innovation Ecosystem to Fuel ARPA-H Research

A culture of collaboration between top industries in Massachusetts will allow ARPA-H to recruit program managers and other skilled talent from a broad range of dynamic, innovative scientific areas. MA is a convergence hub for cross-disciplinary innovation in data science, engineering, and basic sciences, and is home to other successful federal collaborations such as MITRE National Security Engineering Center, NIIMBL (National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals), and the Lincoln Laboratory at MIT.

Massachusetts Connects ARPA-H to the States

Strong transportation infrastructure and multiple New England airports offer a wide variety of opportunities to connect to all major cities on the eastern seaboard and beyond. Global events such as the BIO Convention and MedTech Conference also often use Boston as a hub because of its connectivity and convenience.
