CFTR Chemical Compound Program

The goal of the CFTR Chemical Compound program is to enable cystic fibrosis research scientists to test known cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) modulating compounds in different functional assays.

Overview of the Ordering Process

The CFTR Chemical Compound Distribution Program is sponsored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and administered by Professor Robert Bridges' lab at Rosalind Franklin University of Science and Medicine (RFUSM) in North Chicago, Ill.

Scientists are expected to share their experiences in working with the compounds for the general benefit of the community and in service of the Foundation's mission to find the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis.

  1. The first step in the process is to have a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) in place; the MTA is a contract between the supplying institution and the requesting institution guaranteeing responsible use of the supplied modulators.

    The requestor's institution must sign the MTA and send it to RFUSM's contact, Kim Hankin, at A copy of the MTA will be returned to the requestor after it has been approved and executed.
  2. The requestor will fill out and forward the CFTR Chemical Compound Distribution Program Order Form, including the shipping information and shipping account number.
  3. The modulators will be sent to the requestor directly from RFUSM and the requesting institution will fulfill payment.

Please contact Kim Hankin at or with any questions, requests, or orders.
