The Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health, known as ARPA-H, today announced that Dallas’ Pegasus Park will serve as the physical site for one of ARPA-H’s three headquarters. The Dallas hub will focus on customer experience, access, and diversifying clinical trials for ARPA-H projects.
Dale Petroskey, President and CEO of the Dallas Regional Chamber, said the following:
“The news of ARPA-H’s Customer Experience Hub coming to Dallas confirms what the Dallas Regional Chamber has known and worked toward for some time now: the Dallas Region is becoming a powerhouse for life sciences and biotechnology innovation. Bringing this hub to Pegasus Park takes this to the next level and will bring many more job opportunities to the Dallas Region.
Many partners across the state supported this effort, so this moment is another example of how Texas’ collaborative spirit leads to more and more opportunities for our people and our companies. The Dallas Regional Chamber is very excited about this win, and we will do everything possible to support the success of this great opportunity.”
The Dallas Regional Chamber provided key economic development, research, and policy support throughout the ARPA-H bidding process, including presenting to the selection committee.
