CFTRc Research & Members

We explore the 3 heirarchies of CF research: Basic Studies, Animal Studies & Validation, and Human Studies.

Take a look at the full and associate members who contribute to the various themes in the study of Cystic Fibrosis.

Take a look at the number of publications the CFTRc and its' members have spear-headed since 2014.

We perform basic and applied research on cystic fibrosis and other diseases that affect epithelial tissues.  We study the cellular and molecular physiology of transepithelial salt and water transport, explore the regulation of CFTR and other ion channels, characterize folding and misfolding of CFTR mutants, examine the cell biology of CFTR especially its trafficking, and work with partners to develop new therapeutics for cystic fibrosis.
