We are working with the VMRF to identify research opportunities to develop new therapies for veterans with disabilities. We were introduced to VMRF through distinguished scientists and global thought-leaders, so we anticipated the caliber of work that VMRF would be associated with. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the dedication and effort that the staff and researchers at VMRF would exert to support the project. Kerstin and her staff are one of the hardest working, diligent and focused groups that I've been associated with. What would seemingly be impossible because of the nature of the project was handled professionally, and extremely effectively. VMRF worked extremely diligently to forward a proposal which required sensitivity, speed and collective organization. VMRF, specifically Kerstin, was not able to understand the scope of the project but able to accomplish all this within the short time we had to finish the proposal. All said, and done, it was less than a few days. Pretty amazing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely diligent and dedicated. Kerstin and her group are focused, organized and extremely intelligent. They were able to comprehend not only the nature of our research, but also to quickly and effectively move to forward the proposal.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

solve 10 million problems. Based on the limited time and resources available to finish the proposal, and considering the need to pull in so many different inputs, it's amazing how this small but extremely effective group can pull things off.

As an Executive Management professional for organizations that serve those who served this great country as members of the U.S. military forces, I greatly appreciate the work and dedication of the Veterans Medical Research Foundation (VMRF/ The Foundation) who honor military service with science. Throughout VMRF’s history, they have aligned themselves with the VASDHS in order to conduct valuable research that aides the health and welfare of the military veteran and humankind at large. World recognized scientists and medical professionals perform research in such areas as PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Cardiology, Immunology, Pulmonology, Diabetes, Alcohol and Chemical Dependency, Nuclear Medicine, and many others. It is with great pride that I continue to honor and serve those who have served and look forward to many quality of life advances that are propelled through VMRF and VA research.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the great medical advances in science, such as the Shingles Study that has prevented many from the suffering of Shingles.

As an oncology specialized Research Management Organization, we collaborate with 8-10 VA research groups around the US. The VMRF at the VA San Diego was the first to establish a CRADA that re-enabled industry funded pharmaceutical trials within the VA system, after the federal government instituted the CRADA requirements. The quality of clinical investigators in the hematology-oncology department, and their professional research staff are a tremendous asset to clinical research at the VA. Together they are bringing advanced, research based treatment opportunities to American veterans in need of cancer care. We are very pleased to include VMRF and the other VA research institutes within our oncology research network.
