Our physician-scientists conduct research projects to help children with food allergy, asthma, atopic dermatitis and immune deficiencies. We participate in studies funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Food Allergy Research and Education (FARE), industry 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.
Food Allergy Research
Thirty years ago, food allergy was extremely rare. Today, 4.3 million U.S. children suffer from the life-threatening condition. Our physicians are conducting research to learn more about food allergies and improve treatment options. Our current studies of food allergies investigate peanut and milk allergies.
