In 2018 we published the James Lind Alliance (JLA) top 10 priorities for clinical research in cystic fibrosis (CF), chosen jointly by the patient and clinical communities. These priorities have led to new research funding. To establish whether priorities have changed with novel modulator therapies, we undertook an online international update through a series of surveys and a workshop. Patients and clinicians (n=1417) chose the refreshed top 10 from 971 new research questions (suggested by patients and clinicians) and 15 questions from 2018. We are working with the international community to promote research based on these refreshed top 10 priorities.
