ATS Foundation Research Program

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 $19.3 million to 263 investigators, both in the U.S. and internationally. These researchers have gone on to receive $330 million in federal funding. That's a return on investment of $17 per dollar awarded.
