ERS Excellence Award for Research in Cystic Fibrosis

This research award of 7,500€, financially supported by Vertex, is awarded in recognition of research project in Cystic Fibrosis Science and Medicine. The award is exclusively reserved to scientists and clinicians. The award prize is to be used to further investigate in the area of CF.

The award winner will be awarded at the 2018 ERS International Congress in Paris (15-19 September 2018) and a ceremony will be organised during a related scientific session.


Eligible candidates should be ERS Members and should never have won an ERS Award previously, nor any other ERS Grant in the last three years. Candidatures of young researchers are encouraged, however the career-stage will prevail. The selection of the successful candidate will be made by the ERS Science Council. The Award’s applications are judged independently of the sponsor on the basis of scientific merit.
