Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Clinical Trials for Infectious Diseases

Dr. Harry Lampiris has been one of the lead investigators in the clinical development of new antiretroviral agents for HIV disease. He has been involved in the phase 2 and 3 studies of many of the most important new antiretroviral agents in the last decade (lopinavir/ritonavir, tipranavir/ritonavir, enfuvirtide, tenofovir, TMC 114/ritonavir, and CCR-5 antagonists, for example), which affords veterans with HIV disease the access to these novel agents before they are FDA-approved. In addition, he has been actively involved in the development of new agents for nosocomial infections and gram-positive infections, particularly MRSA and VRE (linezolid and vancomycin).
