At the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we are focused on using the latest technology to develop new treatments for everyone with cystic fibrosis and, one day, a cure.
One of the cutting-edge areas of research we are investing in is gene editing. Gene editing will allow us to repair the CF gene by cutting out the mutation and replacing it with a normal sequence of DNA. Much still needs to be learned, but we are very excited about the possibilities that this new technology offers.
To explain how gene editing works, we have created a video on CRISPR-Cas9, the latest breakthrough technique in gene editing that is revolutionizing the world of science.
Next year, the CF Foundation will include more information than ever about research on CFF.org. If there are science or research subjects that you want learn more about, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
