Division of Allergy & Immunology Research
Our multidisciplinary team of physician-scientists conducts various research projects to help promote patient care and better educate families. We participate in studies funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Chicago Community Trust, the Food Allergy Initiative and our own investigator-initiated studies. We hope our research efforts will improve treatment for children with hard-to-treat asthma, allergies and immune disorders.
