Nemours Children's researchers and clinicians in the Delaware Valley and Florida are working hard to develop new ways to help children breathe easier.

By focusing on asthma and cystic fibrosis (CF), our work has the potential to help improve the lives of millions of children who struggle to breathe. 

Active Research

Asthma and CF Research

Our work in asthma and CF research is concentrated in two large centers: The Center for Pharmacogenomics and Translational Research (CPTR), headed by Kathryn Blake, Pharm.D., BCPS, FCCP and The Center for Pediatric Lung Research (CPLR), headed by Thomas H. Shaffer, MSE, PhD.

“I didn’t know what to expect at first. I didn’t know whether it would help me. And I didn’t think about whether my participating might help others."
