The CHEST Foundation, the charitable arm of the American College of Chest Physicians, champions lung health for all Americans through support for clinical research, patient education, and community service.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications for its 2017 Research Grant in Asthma. A single grant of $30,000 will be awarded to a research project that addresses a clinical, population, or community engagement/health services aspect of asthma with relevance to the understanding of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, management, and/or treatment of the condition. Basic research projects will not be considered.
To be eligible, applicants must be a licensed physician and CHEST member in good standing at the time of application. Physicians-in-training (residents or fellows), other healthcare professionals, and clinical researchers with relevant experience also will be considered. Although applicants may be in the later stages of their career, special consideration will be given to early-career investigators and applicants. Teams are encouraged to apply but must have a representative to serve as the principal investigator who applies as an individual and is willing to receive the bulk of the recognition if the team wins the grant.
