DARPA issues solicitation for radical biological technologies to “optimize human performance”

BioPrepWatch | July 28, 2014

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) released a solicitation on Wednesday for innovative research proposals of interest for its Biological Technologies Office (BTO).

DARPA is looking for research that investigates leading edge approaches that enable advances in science and technologies, especially in systems that intersect biology with engineering or the physical and computer sciences.

The BTO said it is interested in proposals that will advance treatment and resilience in neurological health and optimize human aptitude and performance, as well as develop new tools and techniques for engineering biological systems.

Proposals that would research radical new approaches toward CBRN threats are also welcome under the solicitation.
