We facilitate, encourage and adjudicate clinical, epidemiological and basic scientific research to prevent, diagnose and treat respiratory disease and promote respiratory health.
The Lung Association – Ontario provides funding for the annual research Grant-In-Aid program. Applications are scientifically reviewed by the Canadian Thoracic Society and provided to the Ontario Thoracic Society’s Research Advisory Committee (RAC), which oversees distribution of funds. This vital program provides much-needed funding to respiratory research in the province.
Research Grants and Awards
The OTS Research Advisory Committee annually reviews grant-in-aid (GIA) applications to prioritize grants related to respiratory medicine in Ontario for funding. Funds are distributed annually by The Lung Association – Ontario (TLA) from its fund-raising programs.
RAC coordinates these research activities and provides regular updates on the results of GIAs to Society members and to members of The Lung Association – Ontario.
The Lung Association – Ontario is proud of the class of academic excellence currently being supported in the province and will strive to carry forward this high level of excellence.
