Cystic Fibrosis Research and Translation Centers

The NIDDK-supported Cystic Fibrosis Research and Translation Centers are part of an integrated program of research support designed to enhance multidisciplinary research in pathogenesis and treatment of cystic fibrosis.  Centers provide increased, cost effective collaboration among multidisciplinary groups of investigators at institutions or a group of institutions with an established, comprehensive research base in cystic fibrosis.  The goal of these CF Research and Translation Centers is to support research to develop and test therapies for CF.  These Centers provide resources for communication and collaboration between basic and clinical researchers to study the multiple organ systems affect by CF.​​​​​​​​​​
