VA Cooperative Studies Program (CSP)
Integrated Veteran Epidemiologic Study Data Resource (INVESTD-R)
INVESTD-R provides a means for qualified researchers to access epidemiologic research data, biospecimens, and participant contact information from Veterans for use in secondary data analysis or new data collection. All resources come from experimental, observational, and clinical trial studies conducted by CSP.
INVESTD-R offers three informational and research resource sharing tools for VA and non-VA researchers.
Browse a curated list of VA and non-VA funded epidemiology studies involving Veterans
These selected epidemiology studies focus on different United States Veteran populations. Key study characteristics are documented so researchers can quickly scan and identify which studies to engage.
Access VA CSP research resources (data, biospecimens, participant contact information)
Researchers can request access to CSP research resources from participating CSP studies using a standardized process.
Connect with VA CSP and VA Million Veteran Program (MVP) resources
The CSP Data Commons links investigators, research staff, and research administrators across CSP studies and MVP resources. (Under development)
We thank the Veterans and non-Veterans who've participated in the scientific research studies included in INVESTD-R. This data and specimen sharing effort wouldn't be possible without their contributions.
