Our center has a vigorous research program ranging from basic science to clinical trials of new therapies. We are a proud member of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Therapeutics Development Network. The centers of the TDN work together to perform investigations of therapies contained within the pipeline developed specifically for patients with CF. These studies are done under the supervision of the CF physicians (Flume and Virella-Lowell) and are managed by our research coordinators. If you are interested in participating in any of these studies, or have questions about them, please contact us at (843) 792-4349.
