Grants to USA, Canada, and International research and development companies to develop therapies for genetic diseases. Grant funds may be used to support early discovery, exploratory, and preclinical development studies as well as more advanced programs that are moving into investigational new drug enabling studies. Funding is intended to stimulate and de-risk drug development of novel therapies for cystic fibrosis.
The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis and to provide all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, partnering with the CF community, and advancing high-quality, specialized care. In an effort to stimulate the development of new pharmaceutical products for the benefit of persons with CF, CFF developed the "Therapeutics Development Award” Program. The purpose of this program is to provide funds to companies for the development of commercial products to benefit individuals with CF.
Applications will be considered in any therapeutic area that could benefit people with CF but are particularly encouraged in areas related to treating CF infections, CFTR modulation, mucus clearance (mucolytics and airway surface hydration), inflammation, chronic lung allograft dysfunction, CF-related diabetes, CF liver disease, and nutrition.
The TDA program provides two mechanisms of support:
Awards will be made for either discovery (against certain CF airway pathogens) or preclinical and initial clinical development activities (all therapeutic areas relevant to CF).

The areas selected by the CF community are listed below in order of prioritization. Applications may address any topic area advancing CF care, treatment, or research.
