- The Genetic Disorders Of Mucociliary Clearance Consortium is a network of four U.S. centers (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Washington, and University of Colorado) that are collaborating in the diagnostic testing, genetic studies, and clinical trials in patients with impairments in mucociliary clearance, focusing on primary ciliary dyskinesia, cystic fibrosis, and pseudohypoaldosteronism. Ultimately, this group hopes to better define the clinical pathogenesis of these important airway diseases, improve or expand diagnostic testing, and develop new and effective treatments.
