Applicants must be an active research scientist on a cystic fibrosis project (which may be in the form of a thesis/dissertation project or a funded fellowship or research grant) with at least one year of research experience at the PhD student level.

During residence at the training laboratory or training course, the trainees should become familiar with the proper use of the assay, technique, or model, and learn how to collect, analyze, and interpret data. The program provides up to $3,000 to be used for travel expenses only. The award is paid directly to the awardee institution where the research will be performed.

Applications to support participation in or attendance at scientific research conferences will not be considered through this award mechanism.
