Asthma effects over 34 million Americans and over 300 million people worldwide. A quarter million people die each year from asthma around the world and asthma prevalence is on the rise. Asthma has increased by 75% since 1980, with incidence increasing by 160% in children.

Now, more than ever, research focused on understanding the mechanisms of asthma are needed to help guide the development of tailored treatments.
