About

Dr. Hiatt is collaborating with Drs. Arthur Beaudet and Phil Ng in translational studies of gene therapy for cystic fibrosis. Preclinical studies are in progress using a helper dependent adenovirus and specially modified catheter to deliver a nuclear targeted gene to the airway epithelium. Preliminary studies using various reporter genes suggest that this work may offer a viable treatment option for children with cystic fibrosis. In addition to gene transfer studies, Dr. Hiatt is involved in new drug development for CF. He is a principal investigator for several Phase I, II, and III clinical trials of new medications for the treatment of pulmonary and pancreatic disease associated with cystic fibrosis.
