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 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 allocates grant-in-aid (GIA) funds to individual researchers in support of research in topics related to respiratory medicine in Ontario. These are funded annually by The Lung Association – Ontario (TLA) from its fund raising programs. Please visit the OTS Research Program website for more information on the GIA and TLA/Pfizer competition.

The RAC co-ordinates all research activities and provides regular updates on the results of OTS-sponsored research to all Society members and to all members of The Lung Association – Ontario.
