National VA Research Week will be May 13th - 17th 2024. A National VA Research Week kick-off ceremony will be held on Monday, May 13th, 2024.
VA research is often the channel for new technologies to be introduced, federally approved, and brought to the global mainstream clinical environment. VA researchers are 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 more robust today than ever at VA medical centers nationwide. VA research is working to improve Veterans' lives through health care discovery and innovation.
