The UCSF Cystic Fibrosis Center specializes in the care of children and adults with cystic fibrosis, a common but life-threatening genetic lung disorder. U.S. News & World Report has named UCSF Medical Center a specialized center of excellence for cystic fibrosis, and we are accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our team includes experienced doctors, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, nutritionists and social workers.
In 1980, our center became one of the first in the nation to establish a separate adult cystic fibrosis program, which now is as large as our pediatric program due to continual improvements in patient care.
We are a major center for cystic fibrosis research, receiving more than $2 million a year from the National Institutes of Health to fund several important projects, including a search for new treatments to correct the fundamental defect in the cystic fibrosis gene. We are one of the few cystic fibrosis research and development programs in the U.S., and have been funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for more than 20 years.
You'll need a referral from your child's pediatrician or specialist to make an appointment. Once you have the referral, please call the number below.
