Larry Meyer, MD, PhD


Dr. Meyer has been involved in VA research since 1971, and received his first VA research award in 1986. He is a professor of Dermatology and Internal Medicine at the University of Utah, and has been the ACOS for Research at the Salt Lake VA as well as the National Director for Genomic Medicine and the Chief Officer of Specialty Care for the VHA. He first joined the WIVR board in 2004 in his VA research role, but since his retirement in February 2020, is now a community member. WIVR has played a critical role in sustaining SLC VA research, not only as a mechanism to handle grants and contracts for VA researchers, but by encouraging young investigators to address problems critical to Veterans health.
