AREST CF welcomed Dr Preston Campbell, CEO of the US Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (US CFF)
Prof Steve Stick and the AREST CF group were very honored to host a visit by Dr Preston Campbell, CEO of the US Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (US CFF) today at the Telethon Kids Institute. The support from Dr Campbell and the US CFF have been pivotal in sustaining the AREST CF Early Surveillance Program (ESP) for many years and also instrumental in supporting the translational research made possible by the ESP program. It was a privilege for the AREST CF researchers to meet Dr Campbell in person, and to personally thank him for US CFF support in making their CF research possible; they also took the opportunity to present their ambitious research plans to help bring new therapies into the clinic for CF children.
