A Hub for High-Impact Science

Geisel’s Lung Biology Center brings together more than 200 scientists, physicians, and trainees to advance the understanding and treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) and other chronic lung diseases. Discoveries made by our center have led to new medications and treatments. A quality improvement initiative begun here increased the life expectancy of people living with CF by at least five years.

Stopping Diseases Before They Start

At Geisel’s Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Center, investigators are working to reduce the occurrence of common chronic diseases, including cancer, autism, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, asthma, and allergies. Their work revealed that exposure to arsenic through baby foods and contaminated water negatively impacts fetal development, which led to new federal and New Hampshire-state guidelines.
