President, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Campbell previously served as the Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs, a position he held since 1998. He brings a deep understanding of the Foundation's work to his role, drawn from his 17 years with the organization. Most recently, he oversaw the Foundation's research, drug discovery and development program, and directed clinical research, the Foundation's network of CF care centers, clinical training programs and the national patient registry database. He has more than 25 years' experience providing direct clinical care to people with CF, most recently at Johns Hopkins CF Care Center and at Vanderbilt's CF Care Center. “This is an exciting time for the Foundation as we enter a new era of research, engagement and support on behalf of the CF community,” says Dr. Campbell. “I am committed to advancing the mission that has guided the Foundation from its beginnings 60 years ago: to help people with CF live healthier, longer lives, while we search for a cure...” Under his leadership, the Foundation will continue to work towards new therapies and improve existing ones to help people with CF manage their symptoms. The Foundation is pursuing bold new strategies and technologies to attack the disease at its genetic level, which could one day lead to a cure. It also will connect people with CF with comprehensive programs and services that can help them afford their medications and treatments, as well as fully benefit from their health insurance coverage.
