Call for Research Proposals
Through our New Horizons Research, CFRI supports both basic and translational cystic fibrosis research.
We are seeking to fund research projects up to $60,000 per year (2014-2016) that are highly relevant to cystic fibrosis and are original, probing and/or pioneering a new approach.
The deadline to submit a research proposal is December 31, 2013. For more information, click here.
