Apply for funding to attend the American Thoracic Society (ATS)

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis would like to support researchers working in pulmonary fibrosis to attend the ATS 2020 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.  The awards of £1000 contribute towards costs for conference registration, accommodation and travel.  We have three awards available.

Applications are now invited from any UK based researcher who has had an abstract accepted for presentation (poster or spoken session) for the ATS.  Applications should be in the form of a brief (1-2 page) curriculum vitae, with a copy of the 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 by 29th February 2020

Applications will be judged on the basis of scientific merit and winners will be announced by 30th March 2020.

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.
