Little is currently known about the evolution of lung disease and how a young, healthy adult's lung function changes over time. Made possible by a grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, this is the first-ever longitudinal lung health study following 4,000 healthy individuals between the ages of 25 and 35. It aims to unlock the mysteries of preventing lung disease to ultimately stop it in its tracks.
Hear from the principal investigator, Dr. Ravi Kalhan, about the study's vision and purpose.
"Our aim is to intercept chronic lung disease before it becomes clinically apparent and we think that millennials are the generation to focus in on." — Dr. Ravi Kalhan
