From inventing the implantable cardiac pacemaker to helping develop the brain-computer interface, VA Research has been improving the lives of all generations of Veterans for nearly nine decades.
VA Research has been part of numerous advances in treating heart disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury, mental health disorders, and many other conditions and diseases that affect Veterans.
VA Research has been improving the lives of…Veterans for nearly nine decades.
This year, VA showcases the extraordinary work of VA researchers nationwide through National VA Research Week, May 13-17.
This year’s theme, “VA Research Inspires,” has in turn inspired a fount of creativity nationwide as VA medical centers ready for what promises to be an exciting week of activities and learning. Open houses, poster displays, presentations, award ceremonies and other events will feature the numerous advances and discoveries made by VA Research.
Of course, none of these research breakthroughs would be possible without the Veterans who have volunteered to participate in VA studies. Whether it’s helping to find cures for illnesses or helping to improve VA health care for all Veterans, those who volunteer to take part in research deserve special thanks.
