Research is an integral part of the CF Center with studies occuring side by side with clinical practice. In addition to our own CF database, many of our patients are enrolled in the National CF Registry and encouraged to participate in our own research studies as well as those sponsored by the Therapeutics Development Network.
Founded in 1998 by Dr. Bonnie Ramsey, the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network (TDN) is a national network of CF Care Centers that conduct clinical trials for CF research. The Coordinating Center located here in Seattle provides technical and administrative support for multi-center clinical trials.
Grants from the nonprofit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Therapeutics, Inc. and the National Institutes of Health provide funding for the TDN. These grants expedite research and development of new therapies for patients afflicted with cystic fibrosis.
All residents and medical students at Seattle Children's have exposure to cystic fibrosis both in the outpatient clinics and inpatient wards.
