The Cystic Fibrosis Care Center of the Future

Of the Present

Currently, the University of Utah’s Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Care Center is bursting at the seams. It is difficult to find enough rooms to see patients. University staff has to be creative to enact the infection control measures needed to protect patients.

Of the Future

We envision multidisciplinary care provided in a facility that facilitates all facets of care. This facility would:

  • Provide effortless infectious disease control
  • Improve team dynamics
  • Accelerate personalized medicine
  • Coordinate inpatient and outpatient care
  • Encourage patient engagement in research
  • Allow training of the next generation of team members
