Lung Study

Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are seeking healthy volunteers for a study about lung health.

You may be eligible if you:

  • Are healthy and 18 years or older
  • Have NOT been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis (a type of lung disease)

Study participation includes:

  • 1 or more outpatient visits
  • Medical history, physical exam, and chest x-ray, blood draw, breathing tests, and a 6-minute walk test
