The pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Center is a leader clinically and in research and works closely with the Cincinnati Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center located in the adjacent UC Health Care system. Cystic Fibrosis research is supported by an NIH Core Center Grant, and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Research Development Program and Therapeutics Development Network grants. Our team of CF-oriented scientists and physicians work collaboratively to conduct innovative laboratory and clinical research. Current projects investigate disease mechanisms, novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies, the outcomes of treatments, and improvement of health care systems. We train the next generation of clinical care providers and investigators to be future leaders.
The Division of Human Genetics at Cincinnati Children's is dedicated to uncovering genetic connections to diseases, enhancing the comprehension of fundamental biological processes, and delivering superior care. The overarching objective is to advance pediatric health by incorporating genomics into medical care, paving the way for improved diagnostics, therapeutics, and disease prevention. The Division of Human Genetics completes over 6,500 outpatient encounters each year, providing services at four Cincinnati Children’s based sites and three additional genetic counselor contracted sites. The Clinical Diagnostic and Molecular Pathology Laboratories in Human Genetics are used by clinicians around the world and clinical trial partnerships also enable the physicians to participate in gene therapy trials for rare diseases.
