New Funding Opportunities 2014 

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics (CFFT) announce these new funding opportunities for 2014.


Success with Therapies Research Consortium 

Application Deadline: June 5, 2014 

Applications must be submitted online at Proposal Central by 5:00 pm (Eastern).

The CFF recognizes that people with cystic fibrosis (CF) , families, CF care teams, and healthcare systems have varying barriers, resources, and motivation to successfully complete the tasks necessary to benefit from CF therapies.

To this end, the CFF is creating a Success with Therapies Research Consortium for the purpose of identifying and studying interventions to enhance successful self-management and related health outcomes among individuals with CF.

This consortium is part of the new Patient Engagement program that is partnering with key stakeholders in the CF community to discover new ways to support people with CF and care center teams in efforts to overcome barriers and successfully manage daily therapies.

Accordingly, CFFT invites applications from accredited CF care programs to participate in this consortium.

Successful applicants will receive funding of up to $27,000 per year ($25,000 direct costs plus 8% indirect costs) for up to three years of support. Please review the Policies and Guidelines for complete submission information

Submit application online at Proposal Central.
