Thanks to the hard work of our members and donors, the HPS Network will be able to partner again with the American Thoracic Society (ATS) Foundation to fund another HPS research grant. The $40,000 per year runs for two years and is funded half by the HPS Network, and half by the ATS Foundation. The ATS Foundation also gives us valuable support and know-how to collect and manage grant proposals and have them evaluated by scientists to select the awardee.

Historically, these grants have been a fantastic investment for the HPS community. Besides the additional funding, some of the research that has significantly moved HPS research forward got its start through this program. Every researcher we have funded through this program is still researching HPS today.
