We are partnered with The Suzanne Wright Foundation which is focused on getting funding for an agency called HARPA. The  Health Advanced Research Projects Agency will drive medical breakthroughs for incurable diseases. The agency is modeled after DARPA, which is the 'Gold Standard' for innovation and accountability.

There are more than 9,000 known human diseases, yet there are treatments for only 500 of them.

There has been no improvement in the mortality rate of pancreatic cancer in more than forty years. We have no early detection tools or curative treatments," said Bob Wright, Founder of The Suzanne Wright Foundation. "Pancreatic cancer is one example of the limitations of the current system to address deadly diseases with any urgency. 

The CodePurple initiative advocates for a new approach to federal research built on accountability and results. Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. Ninety one percent of patients die, most within the first year of diagnosis. There are no early detection tests and no curative treatments.
