"A central passion of mine is the support of physician-scientists. Many young investigators are struggling in the midst of a sustained federal government/NIH recession. The ATS Research Program supports research in lung diseases, and I think it’s really critical that organizations like ATS step into that breach." – Mark Gladwin, MD
