Major Research Announcement.
Successful Recipient – Barbara Stow-Smith Cystic Fibrosis Innovation Grant.
We are thrilled to welcome Professor Marc Pellegrini to our Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis Army as the first successful grant recipient of our inaugural National Foundation for Medical Research and Innovation (NFMRI) grant funding program.
Marc is an infectious diseases physician and Head of the Infectious Diseases and Immune Defence Division at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, and Professor of Medical Biology at the University of Melbourne.
His research, in discovery biology, is focused on improving management of infectious diseases that threaten to become the major contributor to morbidity and mortality globally.
His groundbreaking research will focus on eradicating life-threatening infections in people with Cystic Fibrosis.
Australian researchers may have found a way to extend the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. The crippling lung condition is the most commonly inherited disease in the western world – and around half of all patients die by their late 30s. https://t.co/5zYfOfohG3 #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/qEJcLBPv3i
