Congratulations, ATS 2019 Journal Award Winners!

In recognition of their exemplary work across the ATS journals, the ATS is delighted to present the 2019 Journal Reviewer Awards. Awards are based on the number of original research reviews, reviews of new submissions, as they require more reviewer time, as well as the quality of the reviews—length and breadth.  View the winners, and learn more!

The ATS is also pleased to present the 2019 winners of the AJRCMB Junior Investigator Awards. This prestigious award highlights one or more manuscripts for which the first or senior author qualifies as a Junior Investigator in each issue of the published Journal. View the winners!


Help Us Help Members!

Even while working on the frontlines of the pandemic, ATS members have made time to create a variety resources, available at ATS COVID-19 Response, and in the weekly COVID-19 Update email.

But with COVID-19 numbers still rising in the United States, and in anticipation of another surge in COVID-19 this fall, this fight is far from over. As such, we’re seeking feedback to help us identify the resources that would be most beneficial to you.

By taking a few minutes to respond to this survey, you’re helping us maximize Society resources. Thank you for the work you’re doing!
