Research Studies at the University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute

Volunteer for ASTHMA – AIR (Asthma Institute Research Registry)

The University of Pittsburgh Asthma Institute at UPMC/UPSOM aims to improve the understanding and treatment of asthma/allergic diseases and to implement improved approaches throughout the asthma community. A centerpiece of the Asthma Institute is the Volunteer for Asthma program, a group of interested patients with asthma, who wish to be notified of new research studies for which they may qualify. Registry patients participate in the collection of information about their disease, including basic screening questions, lung function testing, and a blood sample. Registry patients have enabled the Asthma Institute to be a national leader in the discovery of new treatment options for patients with asthma. The Asthma Institute is currently looking for individuals over 18 years of age with a current diagnosis of asthma who do not smoke. No more than an hour and a half of your time is needed to join Volunteer for ASTHMA – AIR and you will be compensated $20 plus parking. For more information, call 1-866-804-5278 or email asthmainstitute@upmc.edu.
