Biography

Hwang, TC

The main focus of Hwang’s research is on electrophysiological studies of the CFTR Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Conductance Regulator chloride channel. Cystic fibrosis is the most common lethal genetic disease in the United States. Defects in the CFTR chloride channel in patients with CF result in dehydrated viscous mucus in the airway believed responsible for the most severe symptoms of the disease.
