Nasal organoid for diagnosis and management of cystic fibrosis


Organoids are 'mini-organs' generated in the lab to study human biology and disease. In this study, we will harvest cells from the nose to generate organoids to study the function of cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), the channel that exhibits altered function in patients with cystic fibrosis.
