FOVA Calls for One-Year Delay in New 18 USC Section 208 Interpretation to Safeguard Veterans' Research Opportunities

22 Feb 2024 9:30 AM | Elizabeth Stout (Administrator)

Today, the Friends of VA Research (FOVA) Executive Committee (of which NAVREF is the Chair) submitted a letter to the HVAC and SVAC leadership calling for a one-year delay in VA’s implementation regarding a new interpretation of 18 USC Section 208.

We are deeply concerned that this new interpretation will create additional disincentives and barriers for our nation’s leading scientists and experts to pursue research activities at the VA, further shutting out our nation’s Veterans from clinical trial opportunities that can save lives.

Read our letter here.
