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.

- (-) About the CF Foundation
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.
The investment will go toward finishing a Phase 2a clinical trial for an anti-infective to treat chronic infections in people with CF.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is providing up to $5 million to develop a method to deliver a healthy copy of the CFTR gene into the lung cells of people with CF that is unlikely to trigger an immune system response.
Addressing variability in newborn screening can prevent missed diagnoses and delays in early care intervention.
CEO pledge is part of the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to strengthen the organization and better serve all people with CF
The cystic fibrosis care model is evolving to support people living longer with CF and their increasingly diverse health needs. Catalyzed by the approval of Trikafta® and the COVID-19 pandemic, this adaptive and personalized care model encompasses novel ways to connect clinicians and patients.
Marissa Benchea and Jeremy and Rachel Olimb to lead the Foundation’s volunteer advocacy base into a new chapter of CF
This milestone was reached nearly two years ahead of the initiative’s five-year commitment. However, the Foundation aims to continue to support infection research at the same pace as it has in the past three years.
