Our mission is to improve the lives of lung transplant patients and their families.


We are the only major non-profit organization dedicated to funding research into post-transplant rejection.

Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome Externally-led Patient Focused Drug Development Virtual Meeting

Lung transplantation presents very specific challenges, but the most daunting is a form of rejection called bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS). Doctors know very little about BOS or why recipients are highly susceptible to it. Currently, there are no effective treatments for BOS and lung transplant rejection.

On June 22, 2022, the Lung Transplant Foundation hosted a Bronchiolitis Obliterans Syndrome Externally-led Patient Focused Drug Development virtual meeting.

Bringing hope to the lung transplant community

To date, we’ve raised and given more than $450,000 to help physicians and scientists tackle these difficult and life-threatening issues. As part of our purpose, we also:


Educate and promote public awareness about organ donation


Promote lung transplantation as a viable alternative to end-stage lung disease


Support transplant recipients, their caregivers, and families by providing access to vital information needed to navigate the lung transplant process


Partner with donor service organizations to help make lung transplant research a national priority


Advocate for the advancement of research to cure bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS), the most common cause of chronic rejection


Provide financial support for lung transplant researchers through national programs


Provide support, encouragement, and guidance through our Mentorship Program

We began as a small foundation, but we have steadily grown to become a nationally recognized advocate for lung transplant research.

While doctors and researchers have made great strides in the past 50 years, we still have a long way to go. In order to make new scientific breakthroughs possible, we need your help to fund research.

Please consider making a gift to support Lung Transplant Foundation research and patient support programs.
