Today, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation announced a collaboration with Deep Science Ventures to accelerate treatments that address the underlying cause of CF for every person with the disease. The collaboration will focus on uncovering and designing new technologies to address key scientific challenges on the Path to a Cure.
Researchers are exploring treatments that will keep people with cystic fibrosis as healthy as possible until a cure is found. In the first plenary at the NACFC, two CF scientists explain the progress of current research.
This week, Congress approved a budget resolution that will allow lawmakers to make certain changes to the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid.
There was a clear message in today's second plenary at NACFC: no matter what role you play -- physician, scientist, person living with CF, parent, fundraiser, regulator -- it is going to take a tremendous team effort to advance new therapies as fast as possible and eventually find a cure for CF.
The Foundation hosted a small conference that brought together CF scientists, clinical researchers, and biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry representatives. Learn more and watch a short video of attendees sharing their thoughts about the progress we are making in CF research.
The Cystic Fibrosis Lung Transplant Consortium Biorepository and Patient Registry, in collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, will provide critical clinical data and samples to support future research investigating complications of lung transplant.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought great challenges to cystic fibrosis care. As Michelle Prickett showed during plenary 1 of this year's North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference, CF care teams adapted to provide care and keep us safe. It also shows where CF care may be headed in the future.
Potential oral formulation of drug targeting nontuberculous mycobacteria infections could reduce side effects of current treatment
Nonprofit issues challenge to accelerate treatments for every person with CF
After watching the second plenary of the 2021 North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference, I was incredibly impressed by the level of support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is providing to the development of the next generation of therapeutics. Developing genetic therapies -- especially those as complex as gene editing -- will take a long time and a lot of collaboration.
