ATS Research Program Supports Young Investigators with Awards and Grants


The American Thoracic Society is pleased to announce the 2021-22 Research Program Awardees. The ATS Research Program bolsters early-stage investigators as they strive to launch independent research careers dedicated to innovation in patient care. Since its establishment in 2004, the ATS Research Program has awarded over $21.9 million in research grants to deserving investigators in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.

The ATS Research Program partners with other nonprofit organizations and pharmaceutical companies to maximize the number of grants it can support. The ATS reviews all grants and assumes all costs associated with administrating the grants. The support of Society members, donors, and partners makes these awards possible.
