Our Research Network

We understand the complexity of running clinical trials. For over 70 years—we’ve been conducting large-scale, multisite studies—and our goal is to support your work. The unique VA CSP infrastructure is available to all investigators with an approved letter of intent (LOI) and includes:

  • Data and statistical coordinating centers
  • Epidemiological research centers
  • A pharmacy coordinating center
  • A DNA bank, biorepository, and pharmacogenomics analysis laboratory
  • Enrollment sites at VAMCs throughout the country

With a national infrastructure embedded in the VA healthcare system that includes more than 80 VA medical centers (VAMCs) nationally, along with affiliated community-based outpatient clinics, as well as VA clinician-investigators, expert statisticians, epidemiologists, pharmacists, regulatory professionals, and project managers, our approach is quality-based and designed to quickly recruit and enroll eligible participants for your study.
