Research

Research provides hope for millions of people living with asthma, emphysema, pulmonary fibrosis, and other lung diseases. Here are a few of the research initiatives the American Lung Association is funding.

Asthma Clinical Research Network The American Lung Association is proud to have created a network of centers focused directly on asthma and the care and progression of asthma patients. With 20 centers nationwide, we are making an impact right in our own backyard!

DeSouza Research Award is made possible courtesy of a restricted bequest left by Mr. James L. DeSouza of Phoenix, Arizona. It focuses on tuberculosis and related lung disease research.
