Following the discovery of the #cysticfibrosis gene in 1989, Philip Thomas, Ph.D., from @UTSWNews, was inspired to change his career track. In this feature from our Beyond the Lab series, learn what motivated him to advance CF research rather than pursue an industrial career. With CF research, whats so wonderful is that you get to meet the parents and the patients, and you really have a face - a person - connected to the practical problem youre working on. Theres a lot of joy for scientists -- the joy of discovery, being the first person in the world to understand something. Its wonderful. But, the real joy is when you can take that knowledge and use it to make somebodys life better. I get emotional about this #CFawareness

If youre married to someone living with #cysticfibrosis, then you know there may be challenges that only other spouses of people with CF understand. Thats why were excited to announce that Project CF Spouse is one of the recipients of our Impact Grant! The grant will be used to grow the 150-person group, which started on Facebook, into an organization that will provide educational resources to spouses of people with CF. #CFawareness #CFlife #LifeWithCF #marriedlife

Last weekend, we kicked off the first #GreatStrides walk of the year in Hattiesburg, Mississippi! After a F-3 tornado hit the town just a few months ago, our Mississippi chapter wasn''t sure they would be able to host their walk. But thanks to the cooperation of many groups, they were able to move forward and have a successful walk with nearly 125 participants. #WhyIStride4CF #CFawareness #cysticfibrosis
