The Cooperative Studies Program (CSP) is part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Research & Development (ORD). Our award-winning and internationally recognized program is uniquely positioned to discover and deliver innovations in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of serious medical and health conditions.

CSP has performed more than 200 research studies that have influenced how physicians treat patients in areas that include cancer, heart disease, diabetes, infectious diseases, and mental health conditions. Today, in more than 80 VA medical centers across the country, our investigators—among the best scientists and clinicians in the country—continue their search for the safest and most effective ways to help our Veterans.

At CSP, we also know that how and what we do today affects the breakthroughs of tomorrow. To this end, we are building on current science and technologies, developing new research methods, expanding our informatics capabilities, and looking for even better ways to engage patients and the health care professionals who treat them. This, we believe, is how we will continue to help shape clinical decision-making and improve the health and lives of Veterans and all Americans.
