TITLE: Cystic Fibrosis: From Gene to Precision Medicines
PRESENTER: Prof David Sheppard (University of Bristol)
ABSTRACT: In the inherited disease cystic fibrosis (CF), thick sticky mucus blocks the lungs and bowel, leading to breathing difficulties and problems. Over thirty years ago, the faulty gene responsible for CF was identified. This lecture will highlight research that has led to the development of precision medicines that target the root cause of disease, which are transforming the treatment of CF.
