The Path to a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis
Looking back to 1988 when my second son was born and diagnosed with cystic fibrosis from a vantage point over thirty years ago the path has been clear. He was born fortuitously around the time when the CFTR gene was localized after the human genome was analyzed. The future looks bright, and hopeful. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is committing 500 million dollars over the next five years (2025) for future developments in treatment for CF.
