Center Members Walk for a Cure for CF
May 12, 2014

Great Strides for the Center

Our Center for Nanomedicine team has been a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Great Strides event for more than 5 years, raising close to $30,000 in that time span. We are a group of researchers, working on finding a cure for many untreatable diseases, including Cystic Fibrosis, a fatal genetic disease. We encourage you to join our team or to make a donation and help add tomorrows for patients battling CF! To join or donate, and help us reach our $10,000 goal, please click here. More information available here.
