The focus of this Workshop is on the microbiome and emerging pathogens of the airways in cystic fibrosis. This combines advances from basic science through to new clinically-important insights on the airways microbiota.
Define the microbiota at different locations of the airways in pediatric & adult individuals with cystic fibrosis.
Describe the impact of novel diagnostics & transcriptional profiling on our understanding of the cystic fibrosis airways microbiota.
Discuss the insights gained from metabolic analysis of the airways microbiota & the new hypotheses emerging based on these insights.
