Research Support

World-class research right here in British Columbia! Supporting research pioneers, working hard to help the one in five British Columbians affected by a lung or breathing conditions, is a fundamental initiative of the BC Lung Foundation. 


Lung Health Research Grants 2023 Competition

The Lung Health Research Grants (LHRG) is a peer-reviewed competition that supports pulmonary research or development projects. Applications will be considered for research proposals that are directly relevant to human respiratory health. 

A partnership between Alberta Lung and BC Lung, both organizations manage the LHRG application and peer review process. Applicants should refer to specific provincial guidelines as they may vary for each province. Competition guidelines are available here

The LHRG 2023 Competition is now closed. Results will be announced in January 2024.
