CF Foundation Issues New Clinical Research Facilitation Awards


The CF Foundation recently granted an additional 15 Clinical Research Facilitation Awards (CRFAs) to qualified centers in the U.S. and Canada to support critical clinical trials research. The awards—given to 61 sites to date—help qualified centers further develop their ability to conduct safe and effective CF clinical trials. “These awards have already had marked success in raising awareness and participation in clinical trials, and we are optimistic they will help us continue to enhance the convenience and availability of trials and ultimately accelerate progress in the development of new treatments,” said Preston W. Campbell, III, M.D., executive vice president for medical affairs.
