va research week

National VA Research Week will take place May 17-21, 2021. The VA Office of Research and Development is encouraging Veterans, Veterans Service Organizations, VA employees, and other VA stakeholders to learn more about the significant role VA Research plays in improving Veterans’ health and welfare.

Did you know that VA researchers were part of the innovative teams that developed effective treatments for tuberculosis, invented the CAT scan, and performed the first-ever liver transplant? Cutting-edge research is going on today stronger than ever at VA medical centers nationwide. VA Research is “One Team, One Mission,” working to improve Veterans’ lives.
