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
