Make A Difference: Volunteer for Asthma!

The University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute is proud of the commitment and dedication of our asthma patients and research study participants. Since 2009, over 1000 asthmatics have chosen to participate in an asthma research study and have enabled the Asthma Institute to be a national leader in the discovery of new treatment options for patients with asthma. Many of our volunteers are local, but some have traveled as far as California.

Want to help the University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute discover new and better asthma treatments for children, teens and adults with asthma? Get involved today by participating in an asthma research study at UPMC Montefiore Hospital and Children’s Hospital in Lawrenceville. Asthmatics of all ages are needed.

We will respond to your inquiry by asking you some initial questions about your asthma. Then, we will schedule an appointment for you to meet with one of our asthma research study coordinators at the Asthma Institute in Oakland or Lawrenceville. The visit will last approximately 1.5 hours and you will receive a lung test at no cost and financial compensation up to $30 for your time, along with parking or bus fare.
