Dr. Sellers has spent over 15 years involved in cystic fibrosis-related research. He obtained his B.S. in Animal Physiology and Neuroscience from the University of California, San Diego, where he began his research career studying CFTR-dependent and independent mechanisms of bicarbonate secretion in the intestine. He then went on to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he received his MD and Ph.D. in Molecular and Integrative Physiology. At UIUC he initiated a research program studying the role of CFTR in cardiac myocytes and examining heart function in CF. Following his medical and graduate training, Dr. Sellers went to Stanford University/Lucile Packard Children's Hospital for pediatric residency and pediatric gastroenterology subspecialty training, where he is currently a third year fellow.
