Asthma Canada is working to provide research grants to scientists who are searching for more effective treatments for controlling asthma, keeping the airways open and making breathing easier for millions of people with asthma. With your support we will continue working to provide assistance to researchers as they strive to find a cure!
We have a number of research funds available for you to support, including:
The Dr. Goran Enhorning Asthma Research Fund
In October 2015, Asthma Canada received a gift on behalf of the Dr. Goran Enhorning Foundation for Pulmonary Research. This donation has been allocated to support further research into finding a cure for asthma and continuing some of the research first started by Dr. Enhorning in the 1990s. Learn more about the work of Dr. Enhorning here.
The Bastable-Potts Asthma Research Fund
In early 2014, Asthma Canada established the Bastable-Potts Asthma Research Fund following the receipt of a bequest from the estate of Gail Suzanne Potts, who died in 2012. Mrs. Potts’ mother suffered from adult onset asthma. Her desire was to foster research into the variety of factors that are may be responsible for asthma.
