Since the launch of the Infection Research Initiative (IRI) in 2018, we have made significant progress in funding a range of infection-related projects that give us a diversified portfolio and good coverage of the IRI's six priority research areas. There is still much to be done to address the infection-related needs of the cystic fibrosis community, and we will continue to aggressively fund awards for the IRI through our existing research funding mechanisms with a focus on projects that address the IRI research priorities. At this time, we do not have plans to release a Special Topic IRI Request for Applications (RFA) in 2020. We will continue to evaluate the need for Special Topic IRI RFAs annually and will update upcoming announcements on this page once decisions are made. Academic researchers seeking funding for infection-related projects should submit proposals through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation recurrent funding mechanisms listed below.
