Urgent Phase I/II Clinical Trials to Repurpose Existing Therapeutic Agents to Treat COVID-19 Sequelae (U01 Clinical Trial Required)


RFA-TR-20-003 - The purpose of this urgent funding opportunity announcement is to invite applications to repurpose existing therapeutic agents to treat Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) sequelae and associated complications that result from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infections. The therapeutic agent must have already completed at least a Phase I clinical trial for a different indication, and not require additional regulatory studies for the new indication prior to starting a clinical trial.

Application on a Rolling Basis beginning August 6, 2020

IARPA COVID-19 Seedling Research Topics
Revolving Deadlines

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) invests in high-risk/highpay off research programs that have the potential to provide our nation with an overwhelming intelligence advantage. The current COVID-19 pandemic focuses attention on the need for technologies to assist with:

  • detection and sensing;
  • supply chain management and integrity;
  • geo-spatio-temporal monitoring and mapping, with privacy protection;
    information reliability and collaboration tools; and
  • modeling, simulation, and predictive analytics.

These technologies align well with needs of the intelligence and national security communities and are, therefore, under the purview of IARPA’s research mission. Successful technology solutions will require creative, multidisciplinary methods, paradigm changing thinking, and transformative approaches. Preference will be given to research with the ability to not only provide rapid capability against the current COVID-19 pandemic, but also enhanced warning and response capacity for future similar events.
