The UNC CF Center is a recognized leader in the science of CF, with activities that span from basic laboratory to patient-oriented research. The Marsico Lung Institute is the academic home for a large number of researchers who are focused on the basic causes and treatment of CF lung and gut disease. More can be learned by visiting our website.

Patient-oriented research is a high priority at the UNC CF Center. We conduct single center studies that address important topics, such as the development of new tests that are designed to speed up drug development and help us learn more about CF lung disease in patients. We also participate in, and often lead, multicenter clinical trials of new CF therapies. In this era of rapidly advancing CF therapeutics, teamwork is critical. Patients with CF are the center of this team – and we strive to involve as many patients as possible in studies that will move new therapies closer to approval for all CF patients. Our team also includes physician investigators, highly skilled research coordinators and regulatory specialists. You can learn more about current studies being conducted at UNC below, and can use the Clinical Trial Finder to search all CF clinics trials by therapeutic approach, location, and inclusion criteria (including age, lung function and genotype).
