The Gene Genies team comprises two scientists, Chris Boyd and Laura Hyndman both of whom work in the UK Cystic Fibrosis Gene Therapy Consortium (GTC) laboratories at Edinburgh University, and two of their supporters, Phil Chester and Trevor Mackay. The other GTC labs are located in Oxford University and Imperial College London. Our research is focused on the development of gene therapies for CF. Encouraging results from the GTC's recent clinical trial, involving CF patients from Scotland and the rest of the UK, were published last year in Lancet Respiratory Medicine. Through Flutterby FUNdraisers, we are raising further funding to help pay for our continuing research into gene therapy for CF.

Come and enjoy spectacular scottish scenery within the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, while cycling one of three route options. Start and finish point is Callander, a beautiful bustling tourist town situated on the River Teith, near Stirling, often described as the gateway to the Highlands.
