DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office is hosting a Proposers Day meeting to provide information to potential applicants on the structure and objectives of the new PReemptive Expression of Protective Alleles and Response Elements (PREPARE) program. PREPARE will explore ways to better protect against biological, chemical, or radiological threats by temporarily and reversibly tuning gene expression to bolster the body’s defenses against—or directly neutralize—a given threat. It will focus on four key health challenges as proofs of concept: influenza viral infection, opioid overdose, organophosphate poisoning, and exposure to gamma radiation. Additional details are available at https://www.fbo.gov/spg/ODA/DARPA/CMO/DARPA-SN-18-45/listing.html. Full program details will be made available in a forthcoming Broad Agency Announcement to be posted to the Federal Business Opportunities website.
To register, visit https://events.sa-meetings.com/PREPAREProposersDay. Registration will close on June 6, 2018, at 12:00 PM EST or when capacity is reached. There will be no on-site registration.
Please address administrative questions to DARPA-SNemail@example.com, and refer to the PREPARE Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-18-45) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the PREPARE Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
