Taking on Cystic Fibrosis: A Student Story
Dartmouth College undergraduate Sam Neff D '21 fights cystic fibrosis (CF) every day by following a strict treatment regimen, by contributing to CF research in Geisel’s Lung Biology Center, and by participating in a clinical trial at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. “I think there could be a cure to CF in my lifetime,” says Neff. “That is why I’m so interested in getting involved in research so I can help push the science forward and possibly get to that point.” Learn more about Geisel’s Lung Biology Center and its remarkable contributions to the understanding and treatment of cystic fibrosis. Through the Interaction campaign, Geisel aims to attract $10 million in philanthropic gifts to accelerate the pace of discovery within the center and improve the lives of people living with CF and other chronic lung diseases.
