World-class research right here in Alberta!

Supporting research pioneers, working hard to help the one in five Albertans affected by a lung or breathing conditions, is a fundamental initiative of the AB Lung. Our annual Lung Health Research Grants are a peer-reviewed competition that supports research that’s directly relevant to human respiratory health. To encourage new investigators, particular consideration is given to principal investigators who’ve received their first faculty appointment within the past five years.
