Delivery of genetic therapies to affected tissues is a key challenge to developing new treatments for people with cystic fibrosis. In addition to investing in viral delivery and lipid nanoparticles, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is looking at the potential of a relatively new approach to delivery using an exceptionally small synthetic molecule called a polymer nanoparticle.
During the annual event, volunteers advocated for the PASTEUR Act and the HELP Copays Act, two bipartisan pieces of legislation that could have substantial, positive impact on the CF community.
Two-thirds of people with cystic fibrosis in the U.S. experience debt, food insecurity, or housing issues.
Bipartisan legislation could help patients access necessary prescription drugs by potentially reducing the financial burden that results from complex and hard-to-navigate health insurance plans
The Foundation seeks to advance its mission by making improvements in key areas of health equity and outcomes and diverse workforce development.
The Foundation’s commitment to these principles will continue to be a cornerstone of the Foundation’s work to advance our mission in 2023.
Funding will support preclinical research and early-stage clinical trials
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s investment will go toward conducting preclinical research on a novel gene delivery vehicle. If successful, this gene delivery method could overcome some of the biggest challenges to delivering a gene therapy into the lung cells of people with cystic fibrosis.
