The Jeff Gittus Lung Transplant Fellowship was announced in 2019, funded generously by Liz Gittus and the Gittus Family. The Fellowship provides funding for a research project that focuses specifically on improving lung transplant patient outcomes.

The primary aims of this Fellowship are to:

  • fund a small study that is complete in itself and not merely part of a major study
  • encourage individuals or groups that have not previously been involved in research activities
  • assist graduates in the Health Sciences to initiate research studies, or complete a research project which may form part of higher qualification requirements

One annual fellowship grant of up to $10,000 will be available to fund a project of 12-18 months total duration.
