Cystic fibrosis; secretory diarrhea.
Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is a cAMP-regulated chloride channel located primarily on the apical surface of epithelial cells that line various organs, including the airways and the gut. CFTR dysfunction is detrimental and may result in life-threatening medical disorders. Dr. Naren's laboratory studies two such disorders; (1) Cystic fibrosis, a lethal genetic disease that affects mostly the Caucasian population (>30,000 in USA), in which the CFTR chloride channel is HYPO-functional and (2) Secretory diarrhea, a disease affecting millions of children worldwide, in which HYPER-function of the CFTR chloride channel can occur due to infectious toxins, such as cholera toxin and E. coli enterotoxin. His lab is interested in identifying interactions between CFTR and its binding partners and defining how spatiotemporal regulation of CFTR-containing macromolecular complexes in the apical compartment of polarized epithelial cells lining the secretory epithelia regulates overall fluid secretion. Our studies will identify new drug targets for cystic fibrosis, secretory diarrhea, and other diseases resulting from CFTR dysfunction and provide insights into the etiology of diseases associated with CFTR-interacting molecules.

Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center within the UC Department of Pediatrics. Dr. Seid applies behavioral and social science to the question ‘What does it take to make sure the right treatment gets to the right child in the right way at the right time, every time?’
Dr. Seid has worked at the Center for Child Health Outcomes at Children's Hospital, San Diego and was a behavioral / research scientist at the RAND Corporation. He has been principal and co-principal investigator of several large multidisciplinary research studies, collaborates with investigators at Cincinnati Children's and beyond, and publishes widely in such journals as Medical Care, HSR: Health Services Research, Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Pediatrics, American Journal of Medical Quality, the Journal of Ambulatory Pediatrics, and Milbank Quarterly.

Jason C. Woods, PhD Director, Center for Pulmonary Imaging Research 513-803-4463 firstname.lastname@example.org
Director, Center for Pulmonary Imaging Research
Hyperpolarized gas; pulmonary MRI; translational studies; image-guided pulmonary interventions
Dr. Woods is one of the world’s experts on hyperpolarized-gas MRI and the use of such gas MRI to measure regional lung function, microstructure and physiology. He began his career in physics, radiology, and the dean's office at Washington University in St Louis, and moved to Cincinnati Children's in 2013 to apply new imaging techniques to pediatric translational research. He leads multiple team projects related to the multidisciplinary study of lung structure, function, biology and physiology. In particular, imaging applications to the study of cystic fibrosis, BPD, rare-lung diseases, and allograft rejection are all active areas of current research.
Dr. Woods directs the Center for Pulmonary Imaging Research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The center is a multidisciplinary research and training program at the intersection of pulmonary medicine, radiology, and neonatology.
