Australian Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) Registry

A group of internationally recognised physicians and researchers have received funding to use data from the Australian IPF Registry to investigate the potential relationships between IPF and workplace or environmental exposures. The funding is the second National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) grant involving the Registry. The NHRMC is the pre-eminent source of research funding in Australia, and the provision of this grant adds to the recognition of the Australian IPF Registry as a valuable research platform.

We are grateful to the more than 630 people with IPF who participate in the registry across the country. If you have IPF, please ask your respiratory physician about the registry during your next visit. Health professionals, please contact the Registry Coordinator in your state to inform them of your IPF patients who are interested in joining the registry.
