CFF Multiple Principal Investigator Clinical Award

Closing Date: 22/03/2023

Funding to support multi-investigator-initiated clinical research projects that have the potential to make a significant contribution to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation established in 1955. Its mission is to cure cystic fibrosis (CF) and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualised treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialised care.

The objective of the CFF Multiple Principal Investigator Clinical Award is to provide support for multi-investigator-initiated clinical research projects that have the potential to make an important contribution to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s mission. Research projects may be designed to test new hypotheses and/or new methods (pilot and feasibility) or to advance established results with the potential to address diagnosis, treatment, management of disease or symptoms, or the pathophysiology of cystic fibrosis using clinical (observational/interventional), translational, or epidemiologic study approaches.

Between 2-3 independent investigators must be working on a project, each with an equal share in responsibility and authority for leading and directing the project. It is expected that each investigator will be from distinct subspecialties or research disciplines collaborating for these awards. Collaborations that bring new investigators and technologies into the CF research community will be given highest priority.

Applications focusing on certain areas are particularly encouraged:

  • CF-related diabetes.
  • Sexual reproductive health.
  • Bone health.
  • Diet and nutrition.
  • Gut health.
  • Liver and pancreas.
  • Imaging.
  • Cancer.
  • Remote monitoring.
  • Early lung disease progression.
  • Advanced lung disease.
  • Lung transplant.
  • Sinus disease.
  • Neurocognitive functioning.
  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Sleep.
  • Pain.
  • Antimicrobial management.
  • Microorganism detection.
  • Microorganism relevance and surveillance.
  • Inflammation.
