Thank you for considering an internship with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Metro DC chapter.

The Foundation funds lifesaving research and works to provide access to quality, specialized care and effective treatments for people with CF.

Nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. Through its efforts, the life expectancy of a child with CF has doubled in the last 30 years, and research to find a cure is more promising than ever before.
