CF Research

Human respiratory system with lungs and bronchial treeSince their is currently not a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, our vision is to support research and development of medications that treat Cystic Fibrosis.  Numerous medications treat the symptoms associated with Cystic Fibrosis, but recent advancements in medicine have allowed researchers to create drugs that treat the underlying cause of Cystic Fibrosis, a defective CFTR ion channel protein.  BMBF wants to see an increase in the development of medications that treat Cystic Fibrosis from additional antibiotics for resistant microbes to gene therapy.
