Thank you to everyone who attended the Sixth Annual ATS Foundation Research Program Benefit in San Diego!

More than 500 attendees gathered at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego on Saturday, May 17, 2014 to socialize with friends, honor grant awardees, and recognize William W. Busse, MD, the recipient of the 2014 Breathing for Life Award, our highest honor given in recognition of philanthropy.

The annual benefit is a festive way to bring together the best and brightest in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine in support of the ATS Foundation Research Program. You can check out photos from the Sixth Annual ATS Foundation Research Program Benefit here.

Since 2004, the ATS Foundation has awarded over $11 million in grants to 183 junior investigators, launching careers for a new generation of researchers. Past research program grant recipients have gone on to secure $143 million in additional research funding from the National Institutes of Health and other funding resources, publish in many prestigious national and international journals and become mentors to the next generation of researchers.

The generosity of our ATS Foundation supporters provides research grants for young investigators—thank you for making this transformative research possible!

Save the date for the Seventh Annual ATS Foundation Research Program Benefit on Saturday, May 16, 2015 in Denver, Colorado.

We hope to see you in Denver!
