Cystic Fibrosis Institute - a non-profit limited company for therapeutic research and development (MI)
The Cystic Fibrosis Institute – a non-profit limited company for therapeutic research and development (MI) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Mukoviszidose e.V. (German cystic fibrosis association) and is located in Bonn. The MI was established to promote research projects related to cystic fibrosis and to make the results of this research accessible for people affected by cystic fibrosis. In this case, promoting research means not only providing financial support for a specific research project, but also the targeted relaying of scientific services for the planning, implementation and evaluation of (clinical) projects. These should assist scientists in the high-quality implementation of their innovative project ideas. The MI would like to build bridges for the CF therapy (prevention, diagnostics, therapy) of the future! Therefore, the identification of new research groups, the search for new ideas and bringing cooperation partners together are the MI’s central tasks.
