Research and Development

Welcome to Truman VA Research and Development!  Our mission is to facilitate discovery and innovation through state-of-the-art research that is related to the care of the Veteran population and develop researchers and healthcare leaders all in the context of applicable regulations and ethical guidelines. Our Vision is to emerge as a preeminent research center within the Truman VA / University of Missouri setting.

In the Department of Veterans Affairs, the clinical and research missions are closely intertwined. This relationship is one reason that the VA provides such high quality medical care. Problems encountered in clinical care become the topic of research projects. Those research projects seek ways to translate their findings back to the bedside or clinic to improve the care of our veteran population. Our basic scientists and clinician investigators are studying a wide range of medical issues that are important not only to our veterans, but to the health our nation as well.
