This Giving Tuesday, we’re highlighting our
National Research Program!
Gifts of support on this global day of giving will help us invest in the next generation of promising asthma researchers. Our research grants support scientists who are searching for more effective treatments for controlling asthma and keeping airways open so that breathing is easier for million of people with asthma.
What are we doing now? Read about our 2021 Research Award winners and their exciting projects.
Where will gifts of support go? Read on to learn about our National Research Program research funds.
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 of asthma. Her desire was to advance research into the multiple factors that contribute to the development of asthma.
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 initiated by Dr. Enhorning in the 1990s.
