John D. Dickinson M.D., Ph.D.


I am a physician-scientist with an interest in airway biology and a passion for helping people with Cystic Fibrosis. I am the assistant director of the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Center at the University of Nebraska. I am currently the site leader for a multi-site quality improvement initiative through the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to improve the process of referral for lung transplantation. Our findings indicate that early and recurrent discussions by the CF team pave the way for smoother transitions to the transplant team.
