Research Program Impact

The ATS Foundation provides "seed funding" for young investigators who seek cures and treatment for pulmonary diseases, critical care illnesses, and sleep disorders. This funding has transformed their professional lives, launching careers dedicated to scientific discovery and better patient care. The return on investment (ROI) for the Research Program is outstanding. The ATS Foundation's initial investment of $11 million has resulted in over $143 million in subsequent funds from the federal government to our awardees.
