Workshop (W12) will highlight animal models that contribute to our understanding of CF airway disease. The workshop will include presentations from four different model species. Each presentation will offer insights into disease mechanisms that can contribute to the development and/or exacerbation of CF airway disease.
Discuss the utility and advantages of model species for study of CF airway disease.
Recall factors that may contribute to CFTR dysfunction and/or accentuate airway lesions.
Review key mechanisms that influence CF airway disease pathogenesis.
