Definition The roots of the American Thoracic Society The roots of the American Thoracic Society reach back to 1905, when a small group of physicians decided that the best way to improve care for tuberculosis patients was to share their experiences and discoveries. Today, the ATS has grown into an international society with more than 15,000 members. In this introductory section, you will find information about the people and programs that make the ATS the world's leading medical association dedicated to advancing our clinical and scientific understanding of pulmonary diseases, critical illnesses and sleep-related breathing disorders.<br /> It created a new program to enhance the Societys commitment to discovering new knowledge and advancing patient care. Over the last seven years, the ATS Research Program has grown tremendously, providing more than 7.5 million in grants to 76 young researchers investigating a wide spectrum of lung diseases, ranging from asthma and COPD to pulmonary fibrosis and alpha-1 antitrypsin. The program has also funded the career development of 24 pulmonary and critical care fellows.<br /> A main purpose of the American Thoracic Society is to foster the gathering, evaluating, and disseminating of scientific and clinical information. This part of the ATS Website contains clinical information arranged by topic. Most of the information is developed and contributed by the scientific assemblies of the American Thoracic Society. semblies of the American Thoracic Society.
