We are interested in alternative strategies to determine the severity of CF pulmonary disease using MRI, and the function of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) using a novel sweat test. We are actively involved in nationwide clinical trials of therapeutic agents, as well as several local investigations. These studies are ongoing, and we are always recruiting interested patients. To learn more about enrolling in a study, please call 858-657-7073.
The laboratory of Paul Quinton, PhD, continues to break new ground in understanding the function of CFTR and its role in the development of cystic fibrosis. Dr. Quinton is pursuing several projects, including studies of animal modes, basic cellular physiology, and the human reproductive tract. For more information, see the
Quinton Lab website.
