The mission of the is to cure cystic fibrosis and provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality specialized care.
To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting applications to its Pilot and Feasibility Awards program. Through the program, grants of up to $100,000 over two years will be awarded for the development and testing of new hypotheses and methods in cystic fibrosis research, and to support promising new investigators as they establish themselves in areas relevant to the disease. Priority will be given to projects that propose to better understand the mechanisms behind the disease pathophysiology and to develop strategies to prevent or treat CF.
To be eligible, applicants must be an independent investigator. Fellows will be considered if they anticipate having a faculty-level appointment at the time of the award.
See the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
