Research and alumni successes

The Lung Foundation raises funds to promote medical research into the cause, treatment and cure of lung conditions. Our aim is to advance the understanding, prevention and treatment of lung disease in Australia.

We work with key people to deliver evidence-based support for all in Australia affected by lung disease

Our previous research award winners have undertaken projects in fields as diverse as:

  • Targeting neutrophil extracellular traps as a novel therapeutic option in COPD
  • Early identification of disease progression in IPF
  • The development of primary xenografts as a platform for personalised medicine in lung cancer
