Meet the Research Team

Each year the American Lung Association funds scientist and researchers of lung health through our Awards and Grants Program and the Airways Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) network. Each investigator is working to help us achieve our mission to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease.

Research funding is critical for advancing scientific discoveries and producing breakthroughs that improve the quality of life for people living with lung disease. We invite our supporters who are interested in donating to scientific research to learn more about ways to give. As a result of supporters like you, the Lung Association is funding a total of $6.64 million in grants in fiscal year 2017-2018. We truly appreciate your commitment to lung health.

We invite other researchers interested in our Awards and Grants Program to learn more about funding opportunities.
