The Sellers Laboratory and Clinical Research Group are engaged in research spanning basic and translational laboratory science - clinical research - quality improvement initiatives.  Projects are focused on improving the health of children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis and digestive diseases.

Key areas of our research include:

-- Epithelial airway and intestinal ion transport, with specific focus on bicarbonate secretion

-- Pancreatitis and the bi-directional relationship between the pancreas and intestines

-- Cystic fibrosis-associated liver disease

-- Epidemiology of rare diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and concurrent pancreatitis with other childhood diseases

Please explore our “Research” and ”Expertise” to learn more about our research activities. If you have a potential collaboration or are interested in joining the Laboratory and/or Clinical Research Group, reach out, we would love to hear from you!

The Sellers Lab is hiring Post-doctoral Fellows and staff Research Scientists. If interested email Dr. Sellers.
