For Researchers

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation-supported researchers have made tremendous advances in the knowledge about the defective gene that causes cystic fibrosis, its protein product and special characteristics of the CF cell. This knowledge has led to more new therapies in development than ever before.

There is now a large, coordinated effort to develop new treatments for all people with CF, regardless of an individual's mutations.
