We fund research to find new ways to prevent, treat and cure lung diseases.
People get a new diagnosis of lung disease every week
somebody dies from lung disease
hospital admissions a year are due to lung disease
What we do:
- fund research into the causes of lung disease, improvement of diagnostics, treatments and cures
- support researchers at many stages of their career, including early on, helping to foster the next generation of breakthrough researchers
- campaign to make lung research a priority and increase the UK’s overall investment in it
Research is at the heart of what we do. It's the reason we were founded over 30 years ago - and we've spent more than £33m on it since.
