Office of Research & Development
Clinical Science Research and Development (CSRD) is focused on moving ideas along the translational pathway from scientific discovery to clinical application in order to advance the healthcare of our Veterans. We support research focusing on human beings as the unit of examination. Examples include interventional and effectiveness studies, clinical, epidemiological and technological studies. Investigators interested in CSRD funding are encouraged to contact the scientific portfolio manager assigned to their research topic area to determine the most appropriate funding mechanism for interventional studies.
