MultiVu Video Feed: VA Research Week Offers Glimpse into Medicine's Future
Date:4/29/2009

May 3 through May 9 is National VA Research Week, themed "Turning Hope into Reality." The week celebrates the contributions of VA investigators and collaborators, as well as the Veterans who make the research possible by participating in VA research studies. With state-of-the-art electronic records and close public and private partnerships, VA is uniquely equipped to conduct crucial research. Because most of its researchers also provide clinical care to Veterans, VA is able to quickly translate its research findings into improvements in health care for Veterans and the nation at large.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) presents research advances in the fields of genomic medicine; state-of-the-art advancements in prosthetic design; breakthroughs in restoring central nervous system function; and critical progress in traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, Parkinson's disease and cancer.
