National Respiratory Research Strategy

The National Respiratory Research Strategy (NRRS) is a collaborative initiative of the Canadian Lung Association, the CTS and the CRHP. The NRRS aims to enhance Canada’s research efforts and the impact of research on lung health, through its three pillars:

  • A national training program that will build research capacity;
  • A national grant program to support research projects; and
  • An integrated knowledge translation strategy that uses evidence-based research to inform advocacy, program planning and service delivery efforts across the continuum of care.

For additional information on the NRRS, contact Michelle McEvoy, Manager of National Research Programs, at mmcevoy@lung.ca.


Research Networks

The CTS actively collaborates with the Canadian Respiratory Research Network (CRRN) and the Canadian Sleep and Circadian Network (CSCN).
