APF Conference Grants

Closing Date: –

Fellowships to support students, early career researchers and health care professionals attending international conferences to present research on pulmonary fibrosis.

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis (APF) is a UK charity that focuses on supporting people with pulmonary fibrosis and providing guidance and education to assist medical professionals. Its research funding programme targets research that has the potential either to contribute towards the discovery of an effective treatment or cure, or accelerate change which will enable people with pulmonary fibrosis to live well for longer.

The Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis research priorities are based on four broad areas to address unmet needs in pulmonary fibrosis research, which include:

  • Early and accurate diagnosis
  • Development of effective treatments or a cure
  • Enabling patients, carers and families to live well for longer
  • Understanding of the biological basis of pulmonary fibrosis

The APF Conference Grants (Travel and Attendance Awards) support UK based students, early career researchers and health care professionals who have had an abstract accepted for presentation (poster or spoken session) for the American Thoracic Society International Conference, European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress or International Colloquium on Lung and Airway Fibrosis (ICLAF).
