The genetic information will help physicians predict how patients will respond to medications and other treatments. It also will identify patients who may be eligible for a specific research study and invite them to participate in the investigation. The MVP program will help facilitate early disease intervention, prevent adverse reactions to drugs, save lives and decrease health care costs over time.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;color:rgb(96, 96, 96);font-family:miloweb, -apple-system, blinkmacsystemfont, "segoe ui", roboto, "helvetica neue", arial, "noto sans", sans-serif, "apple color emoji", "segoe ui emoji", "segoe ui symbol", "noto color emoji";font-size:15px;">“First and foremost, the benefit of this new research facility is the opportunity to provide the best clinical care possible for our veterans,” said Samuel Aguayo, MD, associate chief of staff for research at the <a style="box-sizing:border-box;background-color:transparent;color:rgb(171, 5, 32);text-decoration-line:underline;transition:all 0.3s ease 0s;" href="https://phoenixmed.arizona.edu/phoenix-va" target="_blank">Phoenix VA Health Care System</a>.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;color:rgb(96, 96, 96);font-family:miloweb, -apple-system, blinkmacsystemfont, "segoe ui", roboto, "helvetica neue", arial, "noto sans", sans-serif, "apple color emoji", "segoe ui emoji", "segoe ui symbol", "noto color emoji";font-size:15px;">Dr. Aguayo, a distinguished pulmonologist, is the inaugural director of this PVAHCS Research Space. “We are blessed with a number of people who have a common vision,” he said.

As part of that collaboration, many third-year medical students rotate through the PVAHCS during their clerkships, in which they learn first-hand from top doctors how to provide excellent care to veterans.</p> <p style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-top:0px;margin-bottom:1rem;color:rgb(96, 96, 96);font-family:miloweb, -apple-system, blinkmacsystemfont, "segoe ui", roboto, "helvetica neue", arial, "noto sans", sans-serif, "apple color emoji", "segoe ui emoji", "segoe ui symbol", "noto color emoji";font-size:15px;"></p> <figure class="bg-light figure img-fluid align-right" role="group" style="box-sizing:border-box;display:inline-block;margin:0px 0px 1rem 1rem;float:right;max-width:250px;height:auto;color:rgb(96, 96, 96);font-family:miloweb, -apple-system, blinkmacsystemfont, "segoe ui", roboto, "helvetica neue", arial, "noto sans", sans-serif, "apple color emoji", "segoe ui emoji", "segoe ui symbol", "noto color emoji";font-size:15px;background-color:rgb(232, 237, 243) !important;"> <div style="box-sizing:border-box;margin-bottom:0.5rem;line-height:1;" class="figure-img"> <img style="box-sizing:border-box;border-width:0px;vertical-align:middle;max-width:100%;margin:5px;width:0px;" title="The Phoenix VA Health Care System" src="https://phoenixmed.arizona.edu/sites/default/files/inline-images/phoenix-va-story.jpg" data-entity-uuid="fe017c33-b654-489f-82e6-bfdb16cd6290" data-entity-type="file" class="img-fluid" alt="The Phoenix VA Health Care System" /> </div> <figcaption class="figure-caption mb-1 px-2 text-right" style="box-sizing:border-box;font-size:14px;line-height:20px;margin-bottom:0.25rem !important;padding-right:0.5rem !important;padding-left:0.5rem !important;text-align:right !important;"> <em style="box-sizing:border-box;">The Phoenix VA Health Care System</em> </figcaption> </figure> <span style="color:rgb(96, 96, 96);font-family:miloweb, -apple-system, blinkmacsystemfont, "segoe ui", roboto, "helvetica neue", arial, "noto sans", sans-serif, "apple color emoji", "segoe ui emoji", "segoe ui symbol", "noto color emoji";font-size:15px;">The college has more than 155 faculty members with affiliation at the Phoenix VA who serve as department chairs, committee chairs, mentors and advisors.
