Researcher’s travel grants for American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2016

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis would like to support researchers working in pulmonary fibrosis to attend the ATS 2016 in San Francisco.

The awards of £750 contribute towards costs for conference registration, accommodation and travel. We have three awards available.


Applications are now invited from any researcher who has submitted an abstract to the ATS. Applications should be in the form of a brief (1-2 page) curriculum vitae, with a copy of any abstract submitted to the American Thoracic Society meeting and a covering letter detailing the reasons why attendance is of particular importance.

Applications should be submitted by email to info@actionpulmonaryfibrosis.org by 26 February 2016 and will be judged on the basis of scientific merit and winners will be announced by 25 March 2016.

Successful applicants will be asked to write a report of their experiences at the ATS conference for publication on our website. Winners must also acknowledge Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis in any presentations, posters, press releases or announcements related to their submitted application/abstract.
