Mission Statement

(843) 277-2760

​The research program of Charleston Research Institute is highly diverse dedicated to finding new, better, and more cost-effective methods of providing healthcare to our nation’s Veterans. 

This program hosts investigations in medical research, health services research, and clinical trials research. Our researchers are nationally and internationally recognized physicians and scientists devoted to developing a better understanding of the causes of disease and how disease can be treated.  

The sole purpose of Charleston Research Institute is to advance the research mission of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and specifically Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center through the support of research-related activities.
