Research Week: May 15-19, 2017
'Bridging The Gap'

VA Research Week gives VA Medical Centers an opportunity to showcase the numerous achievements of VA researchers and the role they play in providing high quality care for Veterans and advancing medical science. Creative displays, staff interactions, and informative seminars help educate Veterans, our elected representatives, and others about VA research and its impact on treating and preventing disease and disability, not only for Veterans, but all Americans.

Join us as we celebrate 92 years of research excellence by viewing this website, as well as contacting your local VAMC/VA research center to support or attend the many activities being conducted nationwide.

Follow us on Facebook at and Twitter @VAResearch.
