Grant Programs Overview

Since 1996, The LAM Foundation has been funding significant research that has led to tremendous progress in the treatment options and a possible cure for LAM. Today, The LAM Foundation is the largest funder of LAM research, outside of the National Institutes of Health.

The LAM Foundation has raised more than $11 million to support LAM research and patient services, a significant portion of which has been directed to 119 peer-reviewed grants and translational projects.

The LAM Foundation-funded research has led to many major discoveries, including:

  • Evidence that LAM is genetic
  • Identification of a LAM gene
  • Molecular explanation for abnormal smooth muscle cell growth in LAM, which has led to new therapies for LAM
  • FDA approved treatment for LAM
