Institute of Respiratory Health

In 2015, CCF formed a partnership with the Institute of Respiratory Health which is situated in Nedlands.

Thanks to a $1 million commitment over five years, the Conquer Cystic Fibrosis Research Program was born.

This program funds three new postgraduate PhD Scholarships. These scholarships will foster careers in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) research and improve the adult care offered to all those living with CF in WA. It is hoped that the scholarships will help to attract and retain top clinicians in our State. Contact us for more information.

Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust:

The Australian Cystic Fibrosis Research Trust (ACFRT) seeks to allocate funds for high quality research at a national level. The Trust will only support research that has been assessed and recommended by the scientific community. The Trust along with the help of CCF funds has a research study underway, conducted by the University of Wollongon with conferring institutions, the University of NSW and Nanyang Technological University. This research will explore multi-action antibiotics to treat chronic biofilm infections. The ACFRT have agreed to fund this project over three years up to $588,687.00. Contact us for more information.
