The American Lung Association and the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) Allergic Respiratory Diseases Research Award represents a joint effort designed to encourage and support applicants holding a primary faculty appointment in a Clinical Allergy and Immunology Division of an academic medical center and conducting research advancing the understanding of allergic respiratory disease. The grant aims to increase research in academic allergy and immunology divisions. A primary goal of this collaboration is to fund researchers at important crossroads of their careers.
No more than 75% of the requested budget may be used for an awardee's salary and fringe benefits and no more than 30% of the total award budget may be used to fund the purchase of permanent equipment. Grant funds may also be used for the salary and fringe benefit costs of personnel other than the applicant.
