The American Lung Association offers annual funding opportunities as a part of its Awards and Grants Program. The goals of the Awards and Grants Program are as follows:
1. to foster laboratory, patient-centered and social-behavioral research designed to prevent and relieve the suffering associated with all lung diseases and corresponding risk factors
2. to fund researchers at important crossroads of their careers to gain long-term commitment to lung disease research
The objective of the Allergic Respiratory Disease Award is to support research that will advance the understanding of allergic respiratory disease. The Award is a collaborative project between the American Lung Association (ALA) and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI). For more information about AAAAI, please visit www.aaaai.org.
Two award recipients will be selected by a review panel composed of American Lung Association and American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology representatives. Awards are administered by the American Lung Association but the funding of the awards is split equally by the associations.
The deadline for submissions is November 12, 2013.
