With the CF Research News, we aim to bridge the gap between people with CF and the researchers investigating CF and how best to treat those with the condition.
We want to provide access to patients, parents, relatives, friends and caregivers of patients with CF to all scientific work mainly published in the Journal of Cystic Fibrosis (JCF).

All PDF files published hereunder are lay version summaries of work published in the JCF.
