Towards Precision Medicine: Progress in Cystic Fibrosis
The Cystic Fibrosis Canada-SickKids Program in Individual CF Therapy is a collaboration between Cystic Fibrosis Canada, SickKids Foundation and The Hospital for Sick Children to develop a nationally accessible resource that will accelerate the development of precision medicine for the treatment of each individual living with Cystic Fibrosis. The Program held it's first half-day meeting on November 23, 2016 to discuss the progress towards Personalized Medicine in CF, including the use of resources such as CF patient-derived iPS cells to be made accessible by the program to the Canadian CF research community, and other recent advances in the field. The exciting program of short talks included Dr. John Hanrahan of McGill University, Dr. Stuart Turvey of the University of British Columbia and Dr. Marcus Mall of Heidelberg University (Germany).
The meeting was a great success, thank you to all who attended!
Please stay tuned for details of next year's meeting in November 2017!
