Moving Research Forward

As researchers answer questions on the molecular and biochemical mechanisms of CF, more questions follow as the complexity of this disease is encountered. This is why the dedication of CFRI in supporting research is so important.

CFRI’s programs—the Elizabeth Nash Memorial Fellowship and the New Horizons Campaign—have funded research such as Pseudomonas and its interaction with the epithelium, alternate signaling pathways that induce chloride channel function, the role of calcium-activated chloride channels in the lung, antioxidants and the CF lung, mucous gland regulation and secretion, and CF lung microbial populations and their role in susceptibility to infection—all critical issues for CF patients.

The grants we receive are high quality, peer reviewed, and thoughtfully evaluated by Research Advisory Committee members before final funding recommendations are made. My only regret as chair of the RAC is that we don’t have enough funds to support all the proposals we receive.
