Long-Standing Care for Cystic Fibrosis Patients of All Ages

Infants, children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis (CF), and their families receive expert care at the University of Chicago Medicine Cystic Fibrosis Center. Our pediatric and adult cystic fibrosis programs are accredited by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Leading Research Advancements

Our team is actively involved in research to evaluate promising treatments for children with CF. In recent years, we have tested many of the newer inhaled antibiotics, as well as ivacaftor, a new oral medication that can help children and teens who have certain genetic mutations causing CF.

Why Choose UChicago Medicine for Pediatric Cystic Fibrosis Care
