Announcements for Researchers

ATS Research Program: New Cycle Opens Soon!
The ATS Research Program advances the fight against respiratory diseases by providing funding for junior investigators. By partnering with other nonprofit organizations and pharmaceutical companies, the Research Program is able to maximize the number of grants awarded. The ATS reviews all grants and assumes all costs associated with administering the grants.

The 2020 Research Program grant cycle opens June 1.  Learn more, and view the 2019 awardees.

This year, the ATS is also offering two GSK-funded COVID-19 specific research grants, as well as the ATS CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Diversity. While the ATS CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Diversity is not specific to COVID-19, given the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on communities of color, researchers with an interest in COVID-19 research are encouraged to apply.


News from NIH
NIH issued a May 11 notice extending the application deadline from May 25 to June 30 for institutional T32 and T35 training awards. Learn more.
