The Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Research Program

We are thrilled to announce that Conquer Cystic Fibrosis (CCF) has partnered with the Institute of Respiratory Health to develop the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Research Program.

CCF has committed $1M in funding over the next five years to fund three new postgraduate PhD Scholarships. These scholarships will foster careers in Cystic Fibrosis research and improve the life of everyone living with cystic fibrosis (CF).

The scholarships are as follows:

Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Advanced Clinical PhD Scholarship
Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Allied Health Professional PhD Scholarship
Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Scientist PhD Scholarship

Successful applicants will join the Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital Cystic Fibrosis Multi-Disciplinary Team consisting of medical and allied health professionals. This team has a strong and unique research platform of both clinical and laboratory research across multiple disciplines. The successful scholarship recipients will be up-skilled in the area of CF for the next 3 years to ensure they are experienced, qualified and highly skilled.

They will become an integral part of the hospital’s CF team on completion of their training.

We are thrilled that the money we have been able to raise is being used for research right here in Western Australia!

The Institute for Respiratory Health is located in the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research in Nedlands.

We are confident that this significant financial investment will see many benefits for all people that suffer from Cystic Fibrosis around the world.

We sincerely thank all our supporters from the bottom of our hearts. If it wasn’t for the generosity of our sponsors, donors and supporters these wonderful opportunities would not be possible.
