The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation seeks to attract and develop junior faculty who will establish research careers in cystic fibrosis. The primary purpose of the K-Boost Award is to provide supplemental funding to qualified and promising scientists early in their faculty careers who have obtained K funding (e.g., K08, K23, K25) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in areas that reflect the Foundation's research priority areas.
During the term of the award, awardees will focus their research efforts on topics directly related to Foundation research priorities. The goal of this program is to provide supplemental support for research costs or additional salary support for key personnel to NIH K awards that meet these criteria. The supplement will support research that emphasizes either basic or clinical areas relevant to the Foundation's mission.
