CPFF Robert Davidson Fellowships

About the Fellowship

The Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) provides support for all people affected by pulmonary fibrosis (PF), and is the voice of patients living with PF. The CPFF is proud to support eligible physicians who wish to further their training in PF in order to advance clinical, translational, or basic science knowledge in the field and deliver excellence in clinical care to the PF patient community in Canada. The Fellowship is named after Robert Davidson, an IPF patient and lung transplant recipient, who founded the CPFF in order to provide education and support for patients and families affected by PF and to support Canadian PF research.

The Robert Davidson Fellowship will support a 1-year fellowship in PF in Canada with at least 75% of time protected for research-related activities. The combination of clinical and research activities will provide candidates with the opportunity for academic career development that will enable candidates to become key national and international members of the ILD community. Candidates will be expected to lead a research project at their training institution, with the goal of also participating in multicentre activities that will establish nationwide connections with other Canadian centres.
