Basic and Clinical Multi-disciplinary Partnerships to Understand Lung Disease

Basic scientists and clinicians have different training and bring different perspectives to lung disease research. Additionally, mechanisms that facilitate interactions of scientists from different fields may improve communication and facilitate novel ideas for lung disease research. I would like to see a funding mechanism that encouraged such partnerships in addressing fundamental disease questions and/or treatments. Such projects should combine compelling basic science and perhaps animal models along with human-based research.
