New research fund to support translational research in bronchiectasis

Lung Foundation Australia has created a special research fund in memory of Dr David Serisier. Dr Serisier was a passionate advocate, a caring healer, and a dedicated researcher with an impressive international reputation.  He left behind a legacy of dedication and work for people with respiratory and lung disease which Lung Foundation Australia will continue to honour through this fund.

While allowing for some flexibility, this annual prize will focus on areas such as those that:

  • Involve translational research
  • Focus on Bronchiectasis or respiratory infection
  • Support emerging early career researchers

The fund will initially be supported by in memoriam donations made in David’s honour, with ongoing donations sought to sustain an annual prize for several years. To further enhance the research fund, Lung Foundation Australia will match all donations – effectively doubling the value of your gift. The size and longevity of this prize depends on your support.
