Cystic Fibrosis Canada, the Canadian leader in the fight against cystic fibrosis (CF), is proud to present the Quebec Symposium of CF Researchers and Clinicians.

The complexity of this disease and the speed with which we are developing expertise, new medicines and new techniques, confirms the annual need for such an event to share knowledge and best practices.

The Quebec Symposium of CF Researchers and Clinicians brings together nearly 200 representatives from our community, as well as internationally renowned guest speakers. This is the second largest gathering of its kind in Canada. 

Thank you for your dedication to the cause and see you there !
