Funds raised through the 2020-2022 Cystic Fibrosis Golf Classic – Supporting CF Research
CFWA are excited to announce The Australian CF Research Trust (ACFRT) have approved an application for research funding by Dr Luke Garratt from the Wal-yan Respiratory Research Centre, in place of the 2nd proposed PhD scholarship from 2020 CFWA Golf Classic proceeds (a second scholarship was not able to be awarded).
Dr Luke Garratt’s project is regarding neutrophils which perform an important immune function in your body, however for people with cystic fibrosis (CF) they can actually behave harmfully causing lung damage. Luke’s research aims to find methods to change this. CFWA liaises with local CF researchers on an ongoing basis, so we know this is a priority need for research funding support.
