American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology: 2021 Allergic Respiratory Disease Research Award

Research is crucial to a future where lung disease no longer threatens the health of our families and friends. The American Lung Association and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology (AAAAI) Allergic Respiratory Diseases Research Award represents a joint effort to encourage and support applicants holding a primary faculty appointment in a Clinical Allergy and Immunology Division conducting research into advancing the understanding of allergic respiratory disease. One of the goals of this collaboration is to fund researchers at important crossroads of their careers.

The Allergic Respiratory Diseases Research Award aims to increase research in academic allergy and immunology divisions in the effort to benefit patients. As such, the applicant must hold a doctoral degree, be in clinical Allergy and Immunology Division (or Clinical Immunology Division), be undertaking a project related to allergic respiratory disease, and have completed training. No more than 75% of the requested budget may be used for an awardee’s salary and/or fringe benefits and no more than 30% of the total award may be used to fund the purchase of permanent equipment. Grant funds may be subjected to annual review, the second year of support is based on demonstrating satisfactory progress, as well as, the availability of funding for both organizations.
