The Program is designed to support basic, translational, and clinical research in the field of cystic fibrosis. Areas of research may include, but are not limited to:
- CF basic pathophysiology
- CF-specific microbiology
- CF-related epidemiology, clinical care, and health-related outcomes
Awards granted under the Gilead Sciences Research Scholars Program in Cystic Fibrosis may not be duplicative of funding from other government, non-governmental, or industry sources. Applicants seeking an award for research projects that are currently receiving or may receive partial funding from other sources are required to submit appropriate evidence, including budget information related to the other sources, to demonstrate that there is no direct overlap in funding.
Proposals are reviewed by an independent Scientific Review Committee (no Commercial involvement in review and selection, i.e., Marketing, Sales, and Commercial Strategy), and are reviewed based upon the criteria outlined on this website.
