MVP Research MVP map

The Million Veteran Program (MVP) was conceived and implemented to promote genomic and health discoveries and help bring personalized medicine to the forefront of VA health care. As of May 2020, MVP has enrolled over 825,000 participants.

There are over 30 projects ongoing with access to the data for genomic and epidemiological studies that will inform health care delivery. Data are currently available to VA investigators and other approved partners with plans for expanding to non-VA investigators in the future.

At this time, approved researchers are serving as part of a key test phase of the scientific computing infrastructure that will help to inform and facilitate expansion of access to a broader audience. Please find details on the current projects here.

Accessing the Resource:

  • There no open or planned RFAs for access to MVP data as if June 2020. It is anticipated new RFAs will not be available until 2021.
  • A consortium approach is strongly encouraged. Collaborators from university affiliates and other organizations are encouraged.
  • The goal is to open broadly once the computing, operational, and regulatory environments are ready for major expansion. It is expected that the resource will continue to expand access slowly over the course of the next several years.

For future MVP data access opportunities, please be on the lookout for the next RFA (see RFAs and Program Announcements for more information; NOTE: only accessible on the VA Intranet at ).

Publications on the MVP Cohort:

Please see the list of publications which is updated on a quarterly basis.
