Alpha-1 Foundation Grant

The Alpha-1 Foundation, the American Respiratory Care Foundation (ARCF), and the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) have joined together to support the “Advanced Degree and Clinical Research Training Grant in Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.” The objective of this award is to provide additional career development support for outstanding Respiratory Therapists (RTs) who conduct research (clinical or translational), including detection, inhalation therapies, clinical care, diagnostics, and therapeutic tools in alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AATD)-related lung disease. It is expected that the award will provide an incentive for the pursuit of a Master’s-level (or higher) degree and a career in chronic lung disease research with a focus on AATD. Funds will be used to support an RT’s getting advanced training in research (Master’s-level degree or higher) with the subject of the deliverable research project being a meritorious project regarding alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency.
