The American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) Network is the nation's largest not-for-profit network of clinical research centers dedicated to asthma treatment research, attracting some of the best asthma investigators worldwide. The ACRC Network conducts large clinical trials that will have a direct impact on patient care and asthma treatment. The Network consists of 18 asthma clinical research centers throughout the country and a Data Coordinating Center managed by a team at Johns Hopkins University.

The ACRC has accomplished a great deal in just a few years and has already contributed crucial knowledge in the quest to help people with asthma. Since its inception in 1999, the network has completed seven trials leading to 30 published papers in peer-review journals and an additional 35 papers in press or being prepared.  The network has also secured approximately $21 million in government funding and $12 million in industry and foundation support, in addition to $38 million in American Lung Association support.
