So glad “you Dared to Dream” as a young researcher! Finally, a targeted therapy for CF!
Wow, the voice is beautiful … Thank you for sharing via this video
Singing “Dare to Dream” appears a mesmerising rhytm celebrating scientific research spirit for eradicating the CFTR-public health burden affecting millions of Americans (as well as Asia-Pacific/Indians)! The expertise of the NIH Director has been aptly showcased at the North American life-sustaining molecularly targeted treatments are now available for 90 percent of people with CF-scientific sessions at Nashville, TN, USA.
Genetic/cellular/molecular basis of CFTR with therapeutic immunomodulation/pharmacogenetic strategies are warranted for future clinical research for cost-effectively building patient-friendly public health research models on a global platform.
It was wonderful to hear director singing. I wish all those suffering from this CF problem
Good health and achieve what ever they wanted to.
Wonderful to see the progress that has been made in treating CF. The song and its rendition by Dr. Collins is great. Who better to perform it!
I have been following Dr. Collins’ career for almost 3 decades. I am so happy he is still NIH director. He will always have my gratitude for his work regarding CF. I lost my wonderful daughter to CF in 1997 at age 18. This is an opportunity to thank all researchers past, present, and future. THANK YOU!!!! And his wonderful song has resonated in my mind and heart for so many years, and will be there as long as I live. It is a beautiful anthem.
