About Our Research

Investing in the best research has led to outstanding progress in the fight against cystic fibrosis. Our researchers have:

Today, 50 percent of Canadians with cystic fibrosis are expected to live into their early 50s and beyond, and 60 percent of all people with cystic fibrosis in Canada are adults. In the 1960s, most children did not live long enough to attend kindergarten.

In 2019 – 2020, Cystic Fibrosis Canada has committed $4.1 million to support leading-edge research, including 40 research projects, 19 fellowship and studentship training awards, two national core facilities, and targeted research programs and partnerships aimed at advancing CF knowledge, developing future CF researchers, and achieving excellence in the quality of care for CF patients.
