mRNA-1944 successfully encoded for functional antibody (CHKV-24) in humans at all dose levels tested (0.1, 0.3 and 0.6 mg/kg) Antibody level predicted to protect against chikungunya infection achieved within hours; projected to be maintained for at...
DARPAAttention, city dwellers! We're interested in identifying university-owned or commercially managed underground urban tunnels & facilities able to host research & experimentation. go.usa.gov/xVWCn
It's short notice... We're asking for responses by Aug. 30 at 5:00 PM ET. pic.twitter.com/TSWO07bJam
The therapies saved roughly 90 percent of the patients who were newly infected, a turning point in the decades-long fight against the virus.
DARPAEncouraging news from the Democratic Republic of Congo this week as scientists announced that 2 of 4 investigational treatments for #Ebola — REGN-EB3 & mAb114 — have proven so successful in a trial that they will now be offered to all patients!
New system could free bench chemists from time-consuming tasks, may help inspire new molecules.
DARPAResearchers @MIT built a robotic system for making chemicals. First, AI finds best way to make a molecule, then a chemist checks recipe & then a robot performs reactions. Automating chemical synthesis accelerates discovery of new drugs, dyes & coatings. news.mit.edu/2019/automate-…pic.twitter.com/m5nLlPiTw9
The quest to quash outbreaks before they can go global
DARPAA moonshot to remove the entire category of pandemic threats! This story reviews current efforts to combat infectious disease and highlights opportunities where additional funding might make a huge difference.
A real-time interactive journey through the Apollo 11 mission. Relive every moment as it occurred in 1969.
DARPA50 years ago today, the #Apollo11 mission placed the first humans on the moon. Thanks to dedicated historians, we can relive that voyage in detail through film, photos & audio. Take some time to reflect on what people can achieve when they work together.
DARPAThe BAA for our "Securing Information for Encrypted Verification & Evaluation" (SIEVE) program is out! We will be creating efficient zero-knowledge proofs for broad classes of complex, DoD-relevant statements. Abstracts (highly recommended) due 7/31/19.
DARPAICYMI: Our PREPARE program is funding 5 teams to develop new tools for programmable, temporary & reversible modulation of gene expression that could yield enhanced resilience against influenza & ionizing radiation for service members & first responders. go.usa.gov/xy53upic.twitter.com/1CfsFXCx6e
DARPALast night, DARPA launched 3 balloons from Cumberland, Maryland, in a flight test for the Adaptable Lighter Than Air prgm. Over next few days, ALTA will demonstrate capability for wind-borne navigation of a lighter-than-air vehicle over extended ranges. go.usa.gov/xy3k6pic.twitter.com/NjUB6Got94
DARPAPlease join us in congratulating the 11 Systems & 5 Virtual teams that qualified to compete in the upcoming #SubTChallenge Tunnel Circuit! Event takes place Aug. 15-22 in Pittsburgh.

DARPAOne surprising branch of research applies machine learning methods to brain-computer interface. No 2 brains are alike, and not even any 1 brain works the same day to day, so adaptive ML is crucial. In this video, researchers from @JHUAPL explain the tech
DARPAMachine learning for human language technology requires large amounts of annotated training data & doesn't easily adapt to change. Our newest AI Exploration Opportunity focuses on enabling computers to acquire language in manner similar to way children do. go.usa.gov/xmqd3pic.twitter.com/UCWKRU7Tan
DARPAWhat do social media & scientific discovery have in common? Polyplexus, our new social collaboration site, explores the power of social networks for accelerating R&D. If want to share & learn about emerging science & tech, become a Plexor today! go.usa.gov/xEMDypic.twitter.com/139bhdJjCz
