CF lung infections are complex and dynamic communities of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that interact with each other and with the host. The purpose of this symposium is to explore important inter-species and niche interactions that will improve our understanding of airway infection in CF and explore new targets for antimicrobial agents and antimicrobial adjuvants.
Review the current understanding of microbial interactions in CF lung infections.
Describe important bacterial, fungal, viral, and host interactions in the CF lung environment.
Identify opportunities for therapeutic intervention to treat or manage CF lung infections.
