Bonnie W Ramsey,  MD


"I became involved in CF research because of my mentor, Arnie Smith, who was devoted to understanding the optimal antibiotic treatments for CF lung disease. Together, we developed TOBI, an inhaled form of the antibiotic tobramycin. Soon after the drug was approved as a commercial product, I happened to be riding a hospital elevator with one of my patients and her mom. The mother turned to me and said, "I want you to know that you and the TOBI you helped develop have changed my childs and our familys lives. We no longer have to live in the hospital. My daughter is now at home and able to be a normal child. Thank you.""
