Research Study

Researchers at the Flinders University and the Cystic Fibrosis Airway Research Group at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital (WCH) in Adelaide are conducting an online survey study to examine perceptions towards airway gene therapy for Cystic Fibrosis (CF).

Their aim is to examine the perceptions towards airway gene therapy for CF among people with the disease, their families, and members of the general public. This knowledge is vital in the lead up towards clinical trials (beginning in 5+ years) as it will enable researchers to mitigate factors that might impede the success of those trials. Cystic Fibrosis Australia secured funding for this research through the Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust.

The study has ethics approval from the Social and Behavioural Research Ethics Committee at Flinders University and is being conducted with the support of the School of Health Sciences at Flinders University.
