Vietnam-Era Twin Registry
The Vietnam-Era Twin Registry is a closed cohort of identical and fraternal twins who served in the military during the Vietnam era.
The VET Registry maintains a repository of biological specimens obtained from Registry members, including DNA, plasma, and serum samples.
This national study on the impact of COVID-19 on Veterans is being coordinated by the Seattle ERIC.
The Seattle ERIC works to improve the health and health care of Veterans by promoting the principles and practice of state-of-the-art epidemiologic research within the VA. Find out more about our current research, products, and staff.
We are one of several Epidemiology Centers that are part of the Cooperative Studies Program (CSP) in the Office of Research and Development (ORD) at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
