On Apr. 16, 2020, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation hosted ResearchCon, an annual, free virtual event dedicated to CF science and research. Clinicians, researchers, and community members co-led this free online event to share the latest around infection research with the CF community.

This year, the event focused on the next era of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) science and genetic-based therapies. Researchers, clinicians, and community members gave live presentations and answered questions on understanding a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Therapies for rare and nonsense mutations
  • Health effects of highly effective CFTR modulators
  • The effects of modulators and how to reduce treatment burden
  • Reproductive health related to modulators
  • Potential genetic-based therapies to fix or replace CFTR protein
  • How the CF community can engage and partner in research in this exciting new era
