Our Mission

The mission of the Veterans Research and Education Foundation of St. Louis is to improve the health and well-being of Veterans through research and education conducted within the VA St. Louis Health Care System.

Million Veteran Program

The Million Veteran Program is a national research program whose goal is to learn how genes, lifestyle, and military exposures can affect health and illness. Studying genes can help us understand why some people respond to a treatment while others don’t. Results from research could lead to prevention as well as early treatment.
