Research Mission Statement
Our mission is to continually improve the health of all veterans through basic science discoveries and clinical research studies. Investigators at the Boise VA have contributed to advancements in our understanding of aging, cancer, heart disease, nervous system disorders, lung function, and the pathology and treatment of infectious diseases, including those with antibiotic resistance. Our clinical trials have yielded new therapies for skin and soft tissue infections, hepatitis C, and chronic wound healing. We strongly believe that today’s scientific research defines tomorrow’s standard of patient care. Dennis L. Stevens, M.D., Ph.D.
