Airways Clinical Research Centers
The American Lung Association Airways Clinical Research Centers (ACRC) Network, formerly known as the Asthma Clinical Research Centers, is the nation's largest not-for-profit network of clinical research centers dedicated to asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) treatment research, attracting some of the best investigators nationwide. The ACRC Network conducts large clinical trials that will directly impact patient care for COPD and asthma.
Our Centers and Investigators
The ACRC Network consists of 15 clinical research centers throughout the country and a Data Coordinating Center managed by a team at Johns Hopkins University. See where our centers are located and the Principal Investigators.
Patient Advisory Groups
Established in 2017, the American Lung Association Patient Advisory Group was formed to incorporate the patient and caregiver voice and perspective into our mission, programs and outreach.
Current ACRC Clinical Trials
There are several clinical trials currently in progress and at various stages of completion across the United States. If you live with COPD or asthma, or care for someone who does, see what trials are available close to your home.
Outcomes from our studies help shape the clinical practice for people with asthma and COPD. See what the ACRC Network has learned about caring for those with asthma and COPD.
