The Cystic Fibrosis Research Laboratory (UPRES-EA 2511) has been part of the Paris Descartes University for more than 20 years. The laboratory is part of the Institut Fédératif de Recherche of Cochin and of the Faculty of Medicine. It has research facilities and access to many scientific platforms. Its main research area is cystic fibrosis, namely relationships between host and pathogen in a unique mouse model of chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa airway infection. This unique murine model which was named "21st century model of bronchiectasis" in an Editorial in 2011 will be a key animal model in the Work Package 7 of CFMATTERS.
