Research is fundamental to the development of new treatments for CF and we are passionate about enabling people with CF cared for at our centre to take part in cutting edge research. We specifically aim to improve access to the latest pharmaceutical drug trials aiming to develop the exciting new treatments that we hope will transform the lives of people with CF.

We are part of the European Cystic Fibrosis Society Clinical Trials Network (ECFS-CTN), which is a network of research-active European CF centres.

We are also part of the CF Trust Clinical Trial Accelerator Platform (CTAP) and have a CF Trust funded Clinical Trials Accelerator Platform Research Coordinator. Their main role is to help increase research opportunities for people with CF cared for at the West Midlands Adult CF Centre and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

Even if you don't want to take part in a pharmaceutical study, there are plenty of other research opportunities. You can find out about these here.
