Industry Supported Research
All funds accepted by PAVIR must be accompanied (or preceded) by correspondence in the form of an executed grant, contract, agreement or donor letter.
Checks must be made payable to the Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research. The federal tax identification number is 77-0207331. Neither checks payable to other entities nor cash can be accepted by PAVIR.
Please see our Contact Us page for mailing and courier addresses.
Collaborative research with other entities such as universities and pharmaceutical companies requires a contract or research agreement, signed by PAVIR's Chief Executive Officer.
Because PAVIR administers VA Research our contracts and agreements are sent to VA attorneys for review and negotiation. Please send a draft agreement, preferably electronically, before sending originals for execution.
For more information about research agreements with nonprofit corporations affiliated with VA facilities please see the For Clinical Research Sponsors page on the website of the National Association of Veterans' Research and Education Foundations (NAVREF).
