Colorado Cystic Fibrosis Research & Development Program

Program Overview

The Colorado CF RDP brings together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from across affiliated institutions, with the central goal of advancing our understanding of NTM in the CF airway, within the framework of CF Center care, spanning all ages and stages of disease progression. This Program includes support for basic and translational studies, and expands the first-ever prospective clinical trials of CF-specific diagnostic and treatment protocols for NTM disease. More importantly, the unique core services of the RDP are extended to CF patients, clinicians and researchers nationwide.

One of the greatest unmet needs for CF patients and providers is an evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and treatment of NTM.

Through the support of the CF Foundation, we have established the “Colorado CF Research Development Program” with a unifying scientific theme of “nontuberculous mycobacteria in cystic fibrosis”.
