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.

Tinnitus (ringing of the ears) and deafness are among some of the most common problems experienced by veterans and the general population. The overall goals of Dr. Cheung's research program are to create innovative treatments to suppress tinnitus and rehabilitate deafness.  Dr. Cheung's laboratory adapts deep brain and transcranial magnetic stimulation technologies to achieve clinical objectives.
