One area that has gotten some attention while we've been thinking of ideas is this problem of having to carry around enzymes to take during the day. I thought a new discussion might help act as a…Continue
This is the space where we'll post our ideas during this weekend.There are some basic rules- nothing too terrifying I hope! These are to ensure that we don't loose any good ideas early on, since some…Continue

I hope this Easter time has meant that you've been able to take some time off to relax and have some fun. It's still holiday time here in the UK, but there has been some great progress in the development of the Enzyme dispenser, and it's gotten to the point now where we're ready to send out some for people to test. I'll individually email people to see if they would like to have an Enzyme dispenser sent to them, and if so I'll put something in the post & send it out…Continue

I hope that you all had a great time over Christmas, and that 2013 turns out to be an excellent year for everyone.
It's been great to welcome so many people to the site, and also exciting to begin to get some interest in the projects building. Just before Christmas, I blogged about a meeting with the CF doctor here in Sheffield, and how the project to develop a prototype enzyme dispenser has been approved. I thought I would try and explain things a bit further, so…Continue
Just a quick note, as I've just heard:
The industrial partner has committed to the work we'll be doing here! It's all go. I'll blog again with any more developments and updates. Until then, on this Christmas eve- eve, I hope you are all well,
