Deadline Approaching: ATS/CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Diversity

Apply now for the ATS CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Diversity. The focus of this research grant is clinical research that contributes to the understanding of the pathophysiology or treatment of conditions related to pulmonary, critical care, or sleep medicine that disproportionately affects underrepresented minority (URM) patient groups. URM patient groups includes patients from lower-middle and low income countries as defined by the World Bank, or the following North American populations: African Americans, Mexican-Americans, Native Americans (American Indians, Alaska Natives, and native Hawaiians), Pacific Islanders, and mainland Puerto Ricans.

While 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. Learn more and apply now.

Deadline: June 23, 2020

Supporting the ATS

"Many of us know the ATS as a big sprawling conference to which we dutifully trek each year, to learn about the latest in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, to make professional connections, to see old friends and make new ones. But ATS is so much more than an annual meeting. When you support ATS, you are supporting our profession, whether you are in academics or practice, in the ICU or clinic.” Read more about why Angela Wang, MD supports the ATS!

The 2020 ATS Research Program grant cycle is now open. 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. Learn more!

ATS ASPIRE Program – Share and Apply!

The ASPIRE (Academic Sleep Pulmonary Integrated REsearch/Clinical) fellowship is designed to generate a pipeline for the next group of pulmonary/sleep leaders.

The program includes a collaboration between the ATS and several outstanding institutions that have strong Pulmonary/Critical Care/Sleep training programs. These include the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins University, University of Pittsburgh, Harvard University, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and UC San Diego Health System. Eligible fellows do not need to come from a primary ASPIRE institution, but the institution/department needs a T32 grant or RO1 funded faculty.

Generous financial support for this important program has been provided by ResMed, Philips Respironics, and Fisher & Paykel.

Applications are due Monday June 15, 2020. Learn more!
