f this devastating disease."

Including the 2013 grant, the CPF and the PFF have together supported $1.22 million of research for PF in partnership with the ATS.

"The three way partnership ATS grant provided important support to my research program, allowing significant advancement in the understanding that Semaphorin 7a and alternatively activated macrophages might play in the progression of fibrotic lung disease in IPF. It is our hope that one day these novel findings might translate into new therapies for all patients with pulmonary fibrosis," said Erica Herzog M.D, PhD, Yale University's Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and recipient of a joint grant for her research.

CPF/ATS Partnership Awards through 2011 were granted to:

  • Sonye K. Danoff, MD, PhD, of Johns Hopkins University, for her study "VEGF: Marker or Mediator of Lung Injury in Pulmonary Fibrosis?" Her research is currently testing the hypothesis that locally elevated levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the lungs of patients with autoimmune pulmonary fibrosis contribute to disease progression.

  • Andrew Tager, MD, assistant professor at Harvard Medical School in the Pulmonary and Critical Care Division and at Massachusetts General Hospital, for his study "(LPA) and its Receptor LPA1." His study is investigating the role of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and its cognate receptor LPA1 in lung injury and fibroproliferation following bleomycin treatment.

  • Harikrishna Tanjore, PhD, of the Center for Lung Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, for his study "Contribution of EMT to Pulmonary Fibrosis." The study's purpose was to determine the extent to which epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) contributes to lung fibrosis and to investigate the role of TGFβ in EMT in the lungs.

  • Melissa Hunter Piper, PhD, of the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute at Ohio State University, for her study "MicroRNA Regulati
