About Us

VENUS is Unique

The Venous thromboEmbolism Network U.S. (VENUS) is the only collaborative clinical trial research network in the U.S. focused on venous thrombosis.

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.
