The CHEST Foundation has an established history of proudly supporting research projects. The goals of the research projects are to champion the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chest diseases.
Over the years, projects have transitioned from basic research projects into higher level translational research projects. Each year, the round of applicants becomes more versed in helping chest medicine advance and excel, and each year our grant review groups have the difficult decision of selecting the very best applicant.
Since the research grants inception, the foundation has given nearly $9 million to support and recognize outstanding researchers working to advance lung health.
Watch the below video to see how clinical research is advancing lung health.
