The Ziskind Clinical Research Scholar Award is an ATS Foundation award that honors pulmonary, critical care, and sleep fellows engaged in clinical research.

The award was named after Morton Ziskind, MD, a highly respected clinician-researcher from Tulane University who was renowned for bringing his fellows to the ATS International Conferences and exposing them to memorable learning experiences.

In an effort to honor his inspiring mentoring practices, the ATS Foundation created this award program to recognize the best and the brightest individuals in clinical research.
