About Us

Only US Research Network focused on VTE

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 SocietyVersitiASH FoundationNational Blood Clot Alliance, and Anticoagulation Forum.

VENUS is Unique
