SOURCE: SPIROMICS Study of Early COPD Progression is looking for current and former cigarette smokers between 30 and 55 years old to participate in a research study on early signs of lung disease. Most studies of lung disease and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) involve older people. This 5-year study in 12 cities across the U.S. will help us better understand COPD in younger people. You do not need a COPD diagnosis to join.

The SOURCE research study is not yet active in New York City but will begin enrolling participants in Summer/Fall 2022. Please check back soon.
