Our clinic is interested in alternative strategies to determine the severity of CF pulmonary disease using MRI, and the function of CFTR using a novel sweat test. These studies are ongoing, and we are always recruiting interested patients.
The laboratory of Dr. Paul Quinton 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.
