The UAB Gregory Fleming James Cystic Fibrosis Research Center is a university-wide interdisciplinary research center funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and institutional resources dedicated to fostering an innovative, multidisciplinary environment to pursue, advance, and train in cystic fibrosis-related science.

                                                                                Director: Steven M. Rowe, M.D., Ph.D.

                                                                            Associate Director: David M. Bedwell, Ph.D.

With total annual direct funding of $21 million, the Center offers five biomedical research cores, a pilot and feasibility program, and an enrichment program comprised of over 50 investigators. We maintain Core facilities available for studies of cell biology, ion transport, and translational aspects of CF research.

In addition to an experienced CF research center, a strong Cystic Fibrosis Care Center is also located at the Children's Hospital of Alabama and UAB Hospital. This Center provides state-of-the-art care for approximately 400 CF patients. Interactions between the research and care centers provide a direct and creative link between basic scientists and clinicians, and fosters a spirit of cooperation and concern at all levels from the research laboratory to the patients' bedside.
