Philanthropic support makes discovery possible 

The University of Minnesota is home to some of the 20th century’s greatest advances in respiratory health, including a leading lung transplant program and development of a revolutionary chest-thumping vest used to clear the lungs of people with cystic fibrosis.

Charitable gifts support these kinds of life-changing advances in medicine.

World-class treatment for lung diseases

U lung physicians are taking advantage of their lab colleagues’ latest discoveries—including the creation of breathing lungs in the lab—to improve patient care. And though the University is long recognized as one of the world’s largest and most experienced lung transplant centers, U scientists are working to discover ways to prevent the need for such procedures altogether.

Your support can change lives. Give today.
