Our Veteran's service is honored on Veteran's day, November 11. Many businesses offer discounts and freebies on Veteran's day to show their appreciation. Keep in mind that not every area may provide the service so check first to see if they are taking part and always have your Military or Veterans ID on hand.


Established in 1989, IMR conducts and supports extramural research and educational activities by collaborating with the Durham VA Medical Center, private companies, governmental agencies, foundations and academic institutions. It is through these partnerships that the Institute for Medical Research, Inc. has developed an extensive research portfolio to advance the health and well being of veterans, their families and the public at large.

With a varied research program from cancer to PTSD to research in space the Institute for Medical Research plays a vital role in the support of research and education at the Durham VA Medical Center.
