Hi Flibberti, thanks for your interest. Sometimes large organisations who have an interest in a certain respiratory condition and want to fund research through us do make it a condition (e.g. the insurance industry may give us funding for mesothelioma research). Also people who set up a Breathe of Life fund can specify that they would like their fundraising to be spent on research (email@example.com can tell you more). An independent panel made up of medical health experts, people with a lung condition, and our research experts at the BLF decide through a robust process who to give the actual research grants to, taking into account some of the conditions that may be attached to the funding. Hope that helps.
