BLR&D and CSR&D hosted the 2016 cohort of Career Development Program awardees at our annual symposium in Washington, DC
Clinical Science Research and Development (CSR&D) supports research focusing on intact human beings as the unit of examination. Examples include interventional and effectiveness studies, clinical, epidemiological and technological studies. CSR&D supports a diverse portfolio of clinical trials from small single-site studies to large multisite definitive trials through the Cooperative Studies Program (CSP). In addition to conducting multisite clinical trials and system-wide epidemiological investigations, CSP also provides infrastructure support for the Million Veteran Program. For CSP information, please visit the CSP website. Investigators are encouraged to contact the subject matter portfolio manager to determine the most appropriate funding mechanism for interventional studies.
