The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) project contains WGS data from over 5,000 people with cystic fibrosis in the United States that is linked with data from the CF Foundation Patient Registry.
The purpose of the Screening Improvement Program mechanism is to catalyze efforts aimed at improving the screening system used for early diagnosis.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is requesting applications with a Letter of Intent for innovative, multi-site quality improvement projects that aim to test tools and processes facilitating remote cystic fibrosis care delivery.
This program is intended to facilitate research that will contribute to the development of new therapies or therapeutic strategies to treat cystic fibrosis with an emphasis on advancing CFTR gene repair and replacement approaches.
This award is part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Physician Scientist Training Program and is designed to introduce residents to cystic fibrosis research with the goal to develop and maintain interest in a career in CF research or as a CF care provider.
This award program is intended to fund training for physicians interested in developing expertise in the endocrinologic care of patients with cystic fibrosis.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is requesting letters of intent for research projects that aim to use available clinical trials in organ transplantation specimens and/or clinical data to improve knowledge of chronic lung allograft dysfunction pathogenesis and explore new approaches to detection, prevention, monitoring, or treatment of chronic lung allograft dysfunction.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation offers a broad range of funding opportunities to support academic and industry investigators to pursue research on topics relevant to cystic fibrosis. Each application undergoes a rigorous scientific review process before funding is allocated.
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation regularly assesses its key research priorities to ensure we are on track to accomplish our mission to cure CF and to provide people with CF the opportunity to lead long lives. Applicants are encouraged to align submissions to these priorities to maximize their potential for being funded.
