Cross-infection at events

People with cystic fibrosis should never meet each other, as they carry bacteria within their lungs that could be harmful to each other.

People discussing ideas

Meetings and conferences are places where such cross-infection could occur, so even at cystic fibrosis-related events there should only be one person with cystic fibrosis in attendance at a time.

We offer internet forums and platforms to enable people with cystic fibrosis to interact safely, and we live stream events wherever possible. For the 2015 conference, we also recorded interviews with some of our key speakers to help bring the event to life for people who were unable to attend.

Research we fund

The Trust is committed to funding and supporting cutting-edge research to find new and better treatments for cystic fibrosis.
