Strategic CF Research Project workshop

CFNZ, together with Cure Kids, is holding a one-day workshop to gain a greater understanding of how New Zealand can best contribute to global cystic fibrosis research.

Cystic fibrosis clinicians, researchers and stakeholders will meet on 21 November to identify key research projects and explore research priorities, current capabilities and opportunities for a more strategic approach to research investment.

The aim of the workshop is to support the development of an aspirational research vision and explore how new funding (if available) can have the greatest impact for New Zealanders with CF. The process will include consideration of research activity across the continuum of basic science through to clinical research.

The Auckland workshop is facilitated by Michelle Sullivan who has worked closely with the Health Research Council and is supported by Professor Scott Bell. Alex McKay (PWCF) and two Cure Kids donors have also been invited to attend.

We’re looking forward to this workshop and sharing the outcomes with our CF community.
