Last year's UKCFC

Last year was our biggest conference yet - a two-day event that brought together over 500 delegates to explore the very latest in research and innovation in cystic fibrosis care and treatment. The event was live streamed for viewing at home and featured our first ever CF's Got Talent! competition, showcasing the work of some of the brightest early-career researchers working on cystic fibrosis.

We receive no Government funding – all the work we do is thanks to our supporters, their generous donations and amazing fundraising efforts.

As you will hear during the conference, we have some very big plans for the future – a paradigm shift in the way we research, treat and understand cystic fibrosis. Please help us deliver this transformational change by making a regular donation to help us better plan our investments in cutting-edge research.
