We are building a new research strategy

In May of this year, Cystic Fibrosis Canada reached out to the CF community and asked what priorities they would like to see Cystic Fibrosis Canada focus on in our support for research. The feedback provided will help to shape our new research strategy and determine the kinds of research we will support. It is important to Cystic Fibrosis Canada that our strategy is aligned with the needs and priorities of CF patients, their families, friends, and community.

Following the survey, CF Canada hosted a workshop with members of the community including people who live with cystic fibrosis and their family members, CF doctors and clinical care support workers (such as physiotherapists, nurses, pharmacists and dietitians), and CF scientific researchers. At this facilitated workshop participants narrowed down the list of priorities that were identified in the survey.

As the next step in our process, we’ll refine the priorities into categories that will be used to help develop Cystic Fibrosis Canada’s research strategy. We will be engaging individuals from the CF community for one-on-one discussions as we move through this process to ensure that we are staying true to the interests and views of the CF community.

Research

Investing in research has helped us go further in the fight against cystic fibrosis and has led to outstanding progress.

Cystic Fibrosis Canada funded researchers:

Research continues to be a driving force behind helping people with cystic fibrosis live longer, healthier lives. That is why we believe in innovation.  Over the past 60 years, CF Canada has invested over $271 million in research and healthcare, and we continue to invest in cutting-edge research today.

We are pleased to announce that the Research Grant Competition has resumed. Applications for the 2021/2022 competition closed on September 15, 2021. The deadline for applications for Early Career Investigators and Research Fellows is November 1st.  We look forward to reviewing the projects and programs that are submitted.
