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). All studies 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 and then contact the person listed on the study sheet. We hope you will benefit from participating in these studies. Thank you again for helping your Veterans and your community.
Scroll down the site to see the research study topics, select a topic to see what opportunities are available. Select a study and read the study requirements. Call the number listed for each study and a study coordinator will provide more information about the study and enrollment. If you are interested and sign up for a study, please print a copy of the study pdf to bring with you to your appointment. This will help VA staff in directing you to the appropriate office.
Before coming to your first appointment, please acquaint yourself by looking at the VA Interactive Map. With all the construction please arrive early, as parking can be hard to find.
