Mission Statement

We build partnerships to advance research and education for the health of our Nation's Veterans


Established in 2018, the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Research and Education Foundation (GLAVREF) is the result of a merger between two long standing non-profit corporations that served Veterans Affairs Greater Los Angeles Health System (VAGLAHS). GLAVREF builds partnerships that strengthen the power of scientific discovery and education to improve the lives of Veterans. Our organization believes that excellence in administration and capacity building will contribute to a stronger, more responsive, and nimble research operation at VAGLAHS. All research studies and educational programs supported by VA NPCs benefit the VA’s research mission including patients and their families.
