Three Lakes Foundation and MATTER are happy to announce the relaunch of an ongoing innovation program designed to help identify the key challenges and source novel solutions for those affected by pulmonary fibrosis. The program began in early 2020 but paused in mid-February as COVID-19 took center stage.

During this trying time, a spotlight has been pointed at the challenges of living with lung disease. Now, more than ever, we need innovations that will improve the diagnosis and care for those affected by pulmonary fibrosis.

The relaunched innovation program kicks off June 1 with the PF Perspectives Project, an initiative that encourages patients, families, caregivers, and healthcare providers to share their experiences and obstacles in ensuring a timely diagnosis, treatment and quality of life for people living with PF – and how COVID-19 has further complicated these existing challenges. Entries will be used to inform those who will participate in the PF Innovation Challenge later this year, as well as lawmakers, academics, researchers, and advocates in the future.


Pulmonary fibrosis doesn’t wait.
Neither will we.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a little-known interstitial lung disease that affects over 3 million people around the world. Fueled by our own loss and frustration, we are committed to improving care for this disease — and, ultimately, finding a cure.
