Our Partners

The ATS partners with individuals, industry, and non-profit organizations, pooling resources to maximize the number of high-impact projects that can be funded. A guiding principle of the ATS Research Program is to collaborate with other medical, research, clinical, professional, corporate, patient, and non-profit organizations that are focused on the diagnosis, understanding, and treatment of lung disease.
