The Suzanne Wright Foundation advocates for HARPA, a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency, to develop transformative capabilities for health.

Our film “The Patients Are Waiting” explores the potential of HARPA through the eyes of scientists, doctors, private sector leaders, policymakers and patients. They all have different stories, but share a goal: leveraging federal research assets and private sector tools to deliver research to patients.

ABOUT CODE PURPLE

Bob Wright established the Suzanne Wright Foundation in honor of his wife Suzanne, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2016. 91% of patients die from this disease- most within the first year of diagnosis. CodePurple is a Suzanne Wright Foundation initiative to drive urgency and action in the fight against pancreatic cancer. The improvement in survival rates for breast, colon, prostate and other cancers demonstrates how the power of advocacy and focused funding can drive research and save lives. Pancreatic cancer is an emergency that requires an innovative, focused approach. That is why we advocate for HARPA, a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency, to build life-saving capabilities for diseases that have not benefited from the current system.
