Registration is now open for day one and day two of this year's UK Cystic Fibrosis Conference, which is taking place from 10–11 September at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

This year's theme

This year's conference will have an overall theme of the impact that personalised medicine can have for people with cystic fibrosis. Both days of the conference will be streamed live online.

Day one

Day one will focus on the key issues in new clinical research and care.

Register for day one

Day two

Day two will be opened up to families and all of the wider CF community.

With so much to discuss this year – including access to medicines, clinical trials progress, transition to adult care and family workshops – we hope this year’s conference will be the biggest yet. Don't forget to save the date, keep an eye out for registration, which will be opening shortly, and we hope to see you in Birmingham this September!

CF’s Got Talent!

At the end of day one, we’ll also be running ‘CF’s Got Talent!’ for the third year running. This unique event is an opportunity for our early-career researchers to present their work in a jargon-free way to people with CF and their families. Join us online for hear about the hottest research and vote for the winning presentation!

Thanks so much for the live conference. As a mum of a baby and teenager, who both have CF, living in Devon, there was no way I'd be able to get there. I've been trying to listen in whilst doing physio, washing nebs and giving Creon (as well as doing other parent duties). Amazing to be able to watch live... and I'll be rewatching!
