Contact the Cystic Fibrosis Center

The Cystic Fibrosis Center at Boston Children’s Hospital is part of the most extensive research enterprise in the world located at a pediatric hospital. We also have the greatest level of partnerships with the top research, biotech and health care organizations in Boston, working together to improve kids’ health.

Our research has three goals:

1. Develop new therapies

We help determine the effectiveness of new drugs including inhaled antibiotics through participation in large studies conducted through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Therapeutic Development Network.

2. Contribute to a greater understanding of CF

Our investigators are looking for ways to stop CF complications before they begin, including being able to determine early signs of kidney injury.

3. Improve your child’s quality of life

At our Cystic Fibrosis Center, we’re examining the psycho-social aspects of living with CF, including learning what might make patients less inclined to follow through with their treatment, and how we can help them overcome their reluctance to do so.
