About our Research Program

For over 50 years, Asthma Foundations aided by donor and corporate support have funded much needed asthma research, with each Foundation working locally with researchers to support people with asthma and their carers.

Australian researchers are internationally recognised for their excellence in the field – of which donors, our supporters and we can feel immensely proud.  When someone elects to make a donation or bequest to asthma research, they are not only supporting important asthma research here in Australia but also to our global understanding of asthma, what causes it, how it can be prevented and how it should be treated.

The National Research Program has been on hold since we began our national merger on October 1, 2017. As a new organisation, we were obliged to review the program, re-establish its principles, governance and grant procedures and we will be relaunching the program in 2019. In the new iteration, Asthma Australia intends to increase the emphasis on strategic alignment of research priorities and a dedicated approach to translation of results, so research outcomes tangibly lead to improvements in the lives of people with asthma across Australia.

Contact if you have any further questions.
