The UNC Marsico Lung Institute, Cystic Fibrosis/Pulmonary Research and Treatment Center, has a rich tradition of collaboration within the Center. It exhibits a wide scope but “thin” coverage of the scientific areas relevant to CF. In brief, we typically have recruited only one or two experts in a given field, but have attempted to use our large numbers of investigators to cover a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines required to tackle CF research in a collaborative and efficient fashion.
