Cystic Fibrosis: Precision Treatment of a Rare Monogenic Disease Virtual Mini-Symposium

October 4, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join the UNC Program for Precision Medicine in Health Care (PPMH) for Cystic Fibrosis: Precision Treatment of a Rare Monogenic Disease, a free virtual mini-symposium from 3:00-5:00pm on Wednesday October 4, 2023. Cystic fibrosis (CF) is caused by two single-nucleotide changes to a single gene, the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). The CFTR gene contains the instructions for making a protein that carries water and salt across cell membranes. When the CFTR gene is not working correctly, mucus can accumulate in the lungs and digestive system. The speakers in this mini-symposium will address research into developing new CF therapies, methods for determining which therapy will most benefit individual patients with CF, and how the EHR can be leveraged to streamline treatment for patients with CF.
