LUNG INSTITUTE OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Historically the Institute has had a strong interest in allergic airway disease but has now broadened this to encompass all lung diseases.
 
LIWA carefully integrates basic scientific and clinical research to help better understand lung disorders and to improve their treatment.  
 
In its day to day activities LIWA is making a vital contribution to the quality of life of many Australians and to people worldwide.
 
We aim to: 
  1. Support high quality research into the treatment and management of lung diseases including asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, pneumonia and tuberculosis;
  2. Support research into associated conditions such as sinusitis and rhinitis;
  3. Improve the well-being of patients;
  4. Support the careers of young scientists; and
  5. Provide a strong educational resource for the community at large 
Education Activities
The Institute is proud of the range of educational programs it coordinates to assist its own staff, to support the careers of young scientists and also to foster an appreciation of medical research within our community.

Our programmes encompass everyone from high school students to post doctoral scientists.
