Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 10th European Cystic Fibrosis Conference dedicated to Basic Science which, this year, takes place in Malaga, Spain. We are delighted to welcome Aleksander Edelman as the conference Chairperson who will be supported by Robert Ford and Robert Tarran as co-chairpersons.

Basic scientific discovery is critical to our understanding of CF, and already we can see new therapies coming through from the hard work of this endeavour. The ECFS is committed to providing this unique platform for discussing your ideas and networking with your colleagues during this important conference.  This will comprise a series of symposia, special group discussions and workshops, with invited European and International guest speakers. Young scientists will have opportunities to present and discuss their work with international leaders in the field.  It is a high priority for us to support the work of scientists in CF and we are proud that this conference is now established as a key annual event of the ECFS. Your active participation will contribute to a productive exchange of information and I hope future collaborations.

I extend a very warm welcome to an exciting conference. 

Stuart Elborn, ECFS President
