Dr. Paul Quinton’s early discovery of the defect in CF that prevents chloride ions from crossing cells changed our CF world, and his work allowed us to get to where we are today. When he made his discovery he yelled, “Eureka!” Dr. Quinton, now 76 years old has cystic fibrosis so this was personal. He actually diagnosed himself at the age of 19. The Bonnell Foundation loves this man!
