Chinese American Lung Association

The Chinese-American Lung Association (CALA) is an independent and non-profit scholar association founded by a group of Chinese-American pulmonary scientists and physicians in 2012.  The Association’s mission is to unite Chinese-American scientists in the field of lung biology and respiratory medicine in North America to dedicate us to advance research, patient care, education, and advocacy efforts.

The Association aims to promote collaborations and communications in pulmonary research within CALA members; cultivate the career development of junior CALA members; provide support to investigators with translational needs into drug development for pulmonary diseases; advocate for CALA faculty members and advance their career in pulmonary society.
