Million Veteran Program (MVP)
Million Veteran Program – Over 525,000 Veteran Donors and climbing!
February 1, 2017 -- The Million Veteran Program (MVP) thanks Veterans across the United States for becoming donor Veterans to a program that will help researchers better understand the role of genes in disease risk and response to treatment.
The MVP biorepository is uniquely positioned to provide the medical records and blood samples that are aiding researchers and clinicians in curing disease that particularly affect Veterans.
The MVP is paving the way for researchers and clinicians to discover how genes, lifestyle, and military exposures affect health and illness. This data will help identify genetic markers that are key in forming the basis for precision (or personalized) medicine, where medical treatment is tailored to a patient’s condition, DNA makeup, environment and overall health.
VISN 1 conducts enrollments at the VA Boston and VA Connecticut Healthcare Systems as well as in Maine, Manchester, White River Junction, Bedford and Northampton/Worcester.
