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 will be holding a one-day meeting 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.  Some of the exciting program of short talks includes visiting speakers: Dr. Jeffrey Beekman from University Medical Centre Utrecht, Netherlands, Dr. Ann Harris from Case Western Reserve University Medical School, Cleveland (USA) and Dr. John Engelhardt from Molecular Medicine University of Iowa (USA).  We hope you will join us for a day of discussions on the personalization of medicine and the treatment of Cystic Fibrosis.
