Research Opportunities

VA San Diego Healthcare System & Veterans Medical Research Foundation (VMRF)

We would like to invite you to participate in some of our volunteer human subjects research programs conducted by VA San Diego Healthcare System researchers. All of these studies are approved by our local Institutional Review Board (a group of diverse members from the VA and the community) and must meet strict standards for research and ethics.

We encourage Veterans and non-Veterans to check this site periodically for research opportunities.  Your participation helps us answer important research questions and improves health care for Veterans and the general population.  Depending on the study, you may benefit from advanced medical treatment, and some studies offer modest reimbursement.  Sign up today and share this information with Veterans, friends, and family.

Please review the studies posted below and then contact the person listed on the study sheet.  NOTE: If you would like to sign-up for a study, please print a copy of the study sheet to bring with you to your appointment. This will help VA staff in directing you to the appropriate office. We hope you will benefit from participating in these studies.  Thank you again for helping your Veterans and your community.
