John Paul Clancy M.D.

Senior Director, Clinical Trials, Cincinnati Children`s Hospital Medical Center

John Clancy is the Senior Director of Clinical Research at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Pulmonary Medicine at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Iowa College of Medicine and completed his postdoctoral training through a pediatric internship and residency at the University of Virginia, followed by a pediatric pulmonary medical fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Clancy's clinical research projects focus primarily on airway and gastrointestinal epithelial biology. The goals of his research program are to: 1) examine strategies to restore activity to mutant, disease-causing CFTR mutations in preclinical model systems and in human subjects, 2) develop new biomarkers of CFTR activity, and 3) advance novel techniques to monitor CF lung disease. These themes are used to provide research training platforms to future physician-scientists and focus on translational research across model systems to human subjects. This is accomplished through the design and execution of studies in cell-based model systems, mice, and human subjects. Dr. Clancy has been the primary or co-mentor of more than 25 fellows, graduate students, and junior faculty. He is the current holder of the Boomer Esiason/Cincinnati Bell Chair at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. He has published over 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and abstracts and also regularly provides leadership in clinical and translational research through the international CF research community.
