Now accepting letters of intent for the 2018-2019 grant cycle!

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 its inception in 2004, the ATS Foundation Research Program has awarded $17.6 million to 235 investigators, both in the U.S. and internationally. These researchers have gone on to receive $268 million in federal funding. That's a return on investment of $15 per dollar awarded.
