Research in Allergy and Clinical Immunology at Yale encompasses a wide range of allergic and immunological diseases in pediatric and adult populations. Studies conducted by our faculty include the following areas.
- Primary immune deficiency diseases, newborn screening for immune deficiency
- Autoinflammatory diseases
- B cell functions in immune tolerance and immune deficiency
- Extracellular nanovesicles (Exosomes) mediated mast cell and T cell responses
- Atopic dermatitis, and related Atopic March-progression from skin to the lung
- Host-parasite interactions in and vaccines for Lyme disease
- Pattern recognition receptors and NOD-like receptors in allergy and asthma
- Pro-inflammatory cytokines in asthma and allergy
- Sialoglyco ligand binding receptors (Siglecs) in inflammatory lung diseases
- Regulation of anaphylactic responses
For several decades, fellows in training in Allergy and Clinical Immunology at Yale have a wide range of research opportunities and choice of mentorship. Fellows are able to choose a mentor to work with from the Section of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, or from other sections, such as Pulmonary, Rheumatology, and departments, such as Immunobiology, in the Yale School of Medicine.
