As the only association working closely with the Department of Veterans Affairs' research, NAVREF bridges the gap between industry partners and our unique membership of VA-Affiliated Nonprofit Research and Education Foundations. These foundations provide a conduit to the largest and most deserving patient base in the United States. However, there are veterans in search of cutting edge healthcare that are faced with obstacles in need of change. This is where the NAVREF Industry Partner Consortium plays a role.
The NAVREF Industry Partner Consortium (IPC) is a platform for industry sponsors, nonprofit organizations, and other external stakeholders to identify, collaborate, and overcome challenges within VA research that hinder our nation's veterans from accessing some of the finest and most cutting edge healthcare available. The IPC represents stakeholders from all facets of the healthcare industry representing pharmaceuticals, medical technology, nonprofit foundations, and other organizations with an interest to further veterans research.
