How Does NFFRE Help VA Research?
NFFRE is the means by which funding from the following adds to the funding that the VA itself invests in research: 
  • Other Federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health or the Department of Defense.

  • Non-profit organizations such as the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation.

  • Private organizations such as pharmaceutical and device developers and manufacturers.

  • Private individuals who want to help advance Veteran care or are looking for a way to thank Veterans for their service

Participate in Our Research

NFFRE Research is VA Research

While the sole purpose of VA research is to advance the treatment of conditions most common to Veterans, these conditions occur within the general public as well.  Thus, VA research has a long history of advancing care for everyone:  Time line of medical advances made by VA researchersincluding some who won the Nobel Prize. 

Another reason to participate in VA research is that it is one way to thank Veterans for their service.
