Improving Time to Diagnosis

We fund critical programs and services that can improve the diagnostic journey so patients can start therapies sooner, preserve their health and well-being, and enhance their quality of life.

DIAGNOSIS

What We Do

Time to Diagnosis and Earlier Detection

PF is a progressive and fatal lung disease. Most patients are referred to pulmonary physicians and other experts late in the course of their disease.

Improving Timely Diagnosis

Timely and accurate diagnosis for Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) remains a challenge despite scientific advancements and increased information sharing online.

Influence of Inhaled Exposures in PF

Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are associated with inhaled environmental and occupational exposures, including air pollution, second-hand smoke, vapors, gases, dusts, and fumes.

Current Programs

Innovation in PF

The Innovation Challenge is one of Three Lakes Foundation’s strategies for accelerating innovation in a space that has not seen significant advances occurring in decades.
