Funding for RECOVER comes from three CF charities, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) in the US – our main funder, Cystic Fibrosis Trust in the UK, and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland (CFI). The total funding awarded to RECOVER is in excess of €3million. The application for funding for RECOVER went through a rigorous process of review by independent international experts (peer review) to ensure that the project was of sufficient quality to deliver on its aims, and of sufficient importance to the lives of people with CF.
We are enormously grateful to our funders, whose support will enable us to gather really important information about how the new triple combination therapy will impact on people living with CF.
