Could the cure for cystic fibrosis be discovered in Birmingham, Alabama?

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.

Core Facilities

With total annual direct funding of $21 million, the Center offers five biomedical research cores.  We maintain Core facilities available for studies of cell biology, ion transport, and translational aspects of CF research. Interactions between the research and care centers provide a direct and creative link between basic scientists and clinicians, and fosters a spirit of cooperation at all levels.

Seminars and Workshops

The UAB CF Research Center hosts regularly scheduled seminars and workshops that provide UAB faculty and trainees the opportunity to discuss their latest experimental findings, obtain critical feedback, foster multidisciplinary approaches to CF research, and supplement the intellectual and technical expertise of members of the UAB CF Center.

Patient Care

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.
