AAFA supports research to discover new treatments and cures for asthma and allergies. Therefore we advocate for funding and support for innovative basic research, applied clinical research in asthma and allergy and behavioral science research. See the other sections of this Website for information about national and local clinical trials and research grants supported and funded by AAFA.
On an ongoing basis, AAFA advocates for increased funding of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the House Appropriations Committee.
AAFA testifies before Congress for more federal funding allocated toward asthma research. AAFA also endorses the Clinical Research Enhancement Act which provides additional financial support to expand clinical research programs.
