Breathing new life into lung disease research.
Announcing the new American Lung Association Research Institute
More than 34 million Americans live with lung disease. When combined with lung cancer and respiratory diseases like COVID-19 and influenza, lung disease is the number one cause of death by disease in America.
The American Lung Association Research Institute will address this critical health challenge by increasing investments in lung disease research, empower promising scientists, and expand industry collaboration to accelerate discovery and innovation.
