Welcome to the VCU Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program!

We are a team consisting of a doctor, nurse, dietitian, respiratory therapist, social worker, pharmacist and research coordinator working together to fully meet any and all needs of our patients and families.  We access other specialists when needed to meet the identified issues.

Cystic Fibrosis patients usually transition to the adult center between the age of 18-21 years.

The VCU Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Center is dedicated to providing the very best care and disease management to all of the patients with CF in Virginia and the bordering areas.

Director's Message

I was attracted to treating patients with Cystic Fibrosis when I read about it in the Robbins textbook of Pathology during Medical School. The discovery of the CFTR mutation in 1989 opened avenues for new research and treatments. This enthusiasm led me to present a Noon Conference on Cystic Fibrosis, a disease that was not foremost in the minds of my fellow Internal Medicine residents.
