American Thoracic Society (ATS) Foundation and the ChiLD Foundation
Research Grant
The purpose of this grant is to accelerate research in childhood lung diseases by supporting functional studies of novel genetic variants that have been linked to rare, progressive, familial pulmonary conditions. The goal is to characterize the biological mechanisms by which a genetic variant results in childhood diffuse or interstitial lung disease, and to leverage functional/mechanistic insight to develop new treatments. Applicants are encouraged to integrate studies of individual genes with pathways and regulatory networks.
