Many businesses and academic researchers wishing to pursue cutting-edge research ideas with government support lack the resources to navigate the burdensome paperwork requirements required to win federal grants or contracts. DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office (BTO) has created a simplified proposal process to attract and fund new ideas from just those types of innovators—those operating at the intersection of biology and technology who may never have worked with the Defense Department and may otherwise have remained too daunted to try.
Service members need cutting-edge medical countermeasures to protect against both novel and historically intractable diseases. BTO is developing technologies to enable and speed the deployment of safe, effective therapies against known and unknown pathogens.
