The Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group is part of Cochrane, an independent not-for-profit consortium dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care. Cochrane's central functions are funded by royalties which come from sales of subscriptions to the Cochrane Library via from its publishers, John Wiley and Sons Limited. Cochrane's individual entities are funded by a variety of governmental, institutional and private funding sources, and are bound by organisation-wide policy limiting uses of funds from corporate sponsors. A list of Cochrane's funders is available here. Enquiries regarding funding should be directed to Cochrane's Chief Executive Officer, Mark Wilson, at the Cochrane Operations Unit.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the largest single funder of the Cochrane Cystic Fibrosis and Genetic Disorders Group and provides core funding for the Editorial Base. We were also partners in a successful bid for an NIHR Programme Grant to undertake a series of haemoglobinopathy reviews. In addition to this, we have received a grant from the National Hemophilia Foundation for a collaborative research project. We would also like to acknowledge past support from the CF Trust (UK).
