In late 2018 Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (C4CF) proudly partnered with NFMRI.

The partnership will provide at least $750,000 to advance medical innovations in the area of cystic fibrosis over the next three years and will be named the ‘Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – Barbara Stow-Smith CF Innovation Grant‘, in honour of the Foundation’s first bequest.

NFMRI, who receive advice and recommendations from an established Research Advisory Committee, manage and administer grants on behalf of Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis. Its role is to identify, evaluate and support innovative and high-quality research projects with a clear impact.

From January 2019 Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis expanded its grant program to the national scientific research community and offer grant funding opportunities to a competitive research marketAustralia wide. The broad reach of the NFMRI grant program to universities and medical research institutes across Australia, means that Cure4 Cystic Fibrosis can be aware of and potentially fund the best CF research initiatives across the country.

Our sole focus is to fund research that seeks to develop therapies or cures that will result in an increase in average life expectancy of people with cystic fibrosis with consideration given to quality of life.

Expressions of interest are currently being called for in three key gap areas known as social investment portfolios. Each of these portfolios supports research that falls within these gaps to help translate innovations through to next stages, so they may ultimately reach the community. For more information about the portfolio’s please visit https://nfmri.org.au/research-and-innovation/portfolio-summary/
