May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month! In this episode of Lab Rat Chat, Danielle and Jeff chat with Rebecca Welch, a lab animal vet at West Virginia University and Kody Jernigan, her husband, who is living with cystic fibrosis. The two of them provide a really unique perspective on the role of animals in biomedical research, specifically towards developing therapeutics and hopefully one day, a cure, for cystic fibrosis.
