CFRI Research

cystic fibrosis research

Since 1975, CFRI has supported cystic fibrosis research at well-established medical facilities through the funding of grants. Our investment in new ideas has enabled researchers to bring new perspectives to the study of this disease.

CFRI research is funded through two programs: the Elizabeth Nash Memorial Fellowship and the New Horizons Campaign.
