Cystic Fibrosis

The Comprehensive Cystic Fibrosis Center is the oldest and largest of the centers in New Jersey, offering patient care, teaching and research. The center — which includes both pediatric and adult programs — is accredited by the National Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is designated by the State of New Jersey as a referral center for Cystic Fibrosis Newborn Screening.

Patient care is provided by a multidisciplinary team of specialists trained in cystic fibrosis care. Monmouth's Cystic Fibrosis Center has been designated as a Therapeutic Development Center by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Therapeutic Development Network. Clinical trials of new therapies for cystic fibrosis are offered as a result of the center being a part of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Research Network. A team of trained research clinicians oversee the multiple trials offered at Monmouth's Cystic Fibrosis Center.
