We are a group of researchers located at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC). Our Stress and Health Research Program is a partnership between the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), NCIRE – The Veterans Health Research Institute, and the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF). Our research is made possible through these partnerships and with core funding support from the US Department of Defense (DoD) and research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Our current research studies are centered on finding treatments for physical and psychological responses to stress.
The Stress and Health Research Program seeks to improve lives through conducting innovative research that translates into advances in care. Our goal is threefold: to serve as a trusted connection between participants and researchers, to conduct research designed to uncover how stress impacts health, and to develop novel treatments through our discoveries.
CONNECTING PARTICIPANTS AND RESEARCHERS
At the Stress and Health Research Program, we strive to build a better connection between researchers and the communities we serve. We believe that an ongoing and insightful dialogue with participants deepens our understanding of mental health. None of our research would be possible without the generosity and commitment of volunteer participants. We are constantly humbled and further committed to being known as a trusted connection between people and research.
