Cystic Fibrosis Trust


We're bringing together the cystic fibrosis (CF) community, people involved in CF care, researchers and others with an interest in CF for a series of online events. Find out more about CF LIVE and register for the next event.

Through CF LIVE, expert panels will share the latest information and updates from the world of cystic fibrosis. We’ll cover a wide range of subjects and you’ll have the opportunity to be part of the discussion by submitting questions.

Next event: ‘Clinical trials: how you can shape the future of CF medicine’

Wednesday 4 November 2020, 7pm

Join us to find out about clinical trials and how you can contribute towards the development of new medicines for CF through supporting them. We will hear from CF doctors, people with CF who have participated in trials in addition to Dr Retsch-Bogart from the CF Foundation (USA) who will talk about the types of emerging therapies we can expect to see progressing through CF clinical trials in the near future.
