Current Research Projects

We believe that a world without cystic fibrosis is within our reach.

We have seen our cystic fibrosis researchers grow from strength to strength, scaling up their projects, employing new scientists, increasing the hours of existing researchers and being recognised among their peers and the community for the vital and groundbreaking work they are undertaking.
Meet our current researchers and find out more about the innovative projects they’re working on in the fight to pave a future free from cystic fibrosis.
