The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University is an interdisciplinary center with focus on understanding the mechanisms of the immune system, the dysfunctions of which result in allergic reactions. A leader in allergy research, our Center works collaboratively with other researchers around the world to create a data-sharing cluster of information from our interlinked satellite centers to run novel and innovative clinical trials in allergy research.
Our Center includes Stanford specialists in diverse fields including immunology, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, chemistry, bioengineering, pathology, pulmonology, and genetics. Through laboratory and computational research, clinical trials, community outreach, and other efforts, the team works toward finding rationally-based therapies to provide the safest and best treatments for allergies and asthma. Research at the Center may have implications for a wide array of immune dysfunctions including asthma, eczema, food allergies, eosinophilic disorders, drug allergies, gastroenterological diseases, and more.
