Promoting Partnerships To Improve Veterans’ Health

For Industry Partners

In the dynamic and impactful field of medical research, NAVREF plays a crucial role in channeling groundbreaking clinical trials towards Veterans who rightfully deserve state-of-the-art care for their admirable service to our nation.  As the only association fully integrated with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, NAVREF works across our membership to bridge the gap between industry partners and the VA. We collaborate with a diverse range of public and private partners that are dedicated to advancing the research and education missions of the VA.

We work with industry partners to promote partnerships, disseminate information, and launch programs all aimed at ensuring that Veterans and their families have access to the highest quality care available.
