What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

ATS Research Program

The American Thoracic Society and its Research Program are improving respiratory health worldwide by supporting young investigators in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. The ATS Research Program bolsters new investigators as they strive to launch independent research careers dedicated to innovation in patient care.

Since 2004, the Research Program has awarded $22.8 million in research grants to 334 investigators who have gone on to secure more than $784.8 million in federal funding. That's a return on investment of $34 per dollar awarded.

Research has led to breathtaking advances in medicine. But there is much more to be learned, especially in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.

By providing research grants to promising young investigators, the ATS Research Program launches careers dedicated to advancing scientific discovery—and better patient care.
