    Research Summary/In Plain Language

    Research in Plain Language

    Cystic fibrosis is a very serious disease that mainly affects the lungs and digestive system. Patients who have cystic fibrosis inherit the disease from both the mother and the father. It is treatable, but there is no known cure at this time. My research involves reviewing symptoms, providing treatment recommendations, and documenting the long-term effects of the disease. We are conducting this research in order to understand and learn more, with the goal of finding a cure and better treatment options for patients whose current treatment is inadequate.
