VENUS’s purpose is to initiate and implement collaborative, multi-institutional clinical trials and/or other scientific research projects focused on thrombotic disorders in the United States. VENUS members are individual physician-scientists employed at various academic medical or other non-commercial research institutions in the U.S.
Members are organized into committees based on their research focus. Each VENUS committee is charged with organizing collaborative, multi-institutional research projects, including clinical trials, and applying for grant funds to support proposed projects.
VENUS is supported by the Hemostasis & Thrombosis Research Society, Versiti, ASH Foundation, National Blood Clot Alliance, and Anticoagulation Forum.
