What does a non-profit respiratory research institute do, and what can it do for you?

The Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, located in Albuquerque, New Mexico is one of the largest private, not-for-profit research organizations in the United States. Like other independent not-for-profit research institutes, LRRI conducts basic and applied science research and texting. According to the Association of Independent Research Institutes, all of the institutes in the US together receive more than 10% of the extramural funds provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Although many of the almost 90 not-for-profit research institutes in the US perform health-based research, LRRI is the only basic research organization focusing exclusively on respiratory health, with the goal of serving humanity through research on the prevention, treatment, and cure of respiratory disease.
