Cystic Fibrosis Canada Announces 2016 Research Grant and Award Recipients

In January 2017, Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s Scientific Review Panel met to review applications submitted to the 2016 Fall Research Competition, the largest competition of the year held by the organization. The top applicants were awarded funding for their projects following a rigorous, independent review process where all grants were evaluated for scientific merit and relevance to the CF community by a panel of scientists, clinicians, and stakeholder community members. Representing 15 different institutions, the 2016 awardees are tackling important research questions to bring us closer to a world without CF. In total, 9 basic research grants, 2 clinical research grants, 8 fellowships, and 6 studentships were awarded.

Congratulations to our most recent grants and awards recipients!
