The 2017-2018 ATS Foundation Research Program is accepting letter of intent applications now.

More than one billion persons worldwide suffer from chronic respiratory conditions affecting people in every country and every socioeconomic group, but take the heaviest toll on the poor, the old, the young, and the weak. The ATS Foundation Research Program advances the fight against respiratory diseases by providing  funding for junior investigators just starting their research careers.

Since 2004, the ATS Foundation Research Program has awarded $16 million to 210 investigators who have gone on to secure $215 million in federal funding. That’s a return on investment of $13 per dollar awarded.
