Specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric patients with allergy, asthma and primary or secondary immune dysfunction, Allergy and Immunology faculty treat the expanding spectrum of complex allergic and immunologic diseases, including:
- Hypersensitivity diseases
- Severe asthma

With more than 20 years of continuous external-sponsored funding of basic and clinical research, we offer training in the most current treatment of allergic and immunological disorders. The faculty is composed of experts in the use of:
- Allergen-specific immunotherapy
- Intravenous immunoglobulin replacement therapy
- Bone marrow stem cell transplantation
- Immunomodulatory therapy with fusion proteins
The Allergy and Immunology service cares for children with deficient and/or excessive immune systems. We specialize in immunodeficiency disorders, food allergy, and immune based therapies. The service maintains vibrant clinical and basic scientific research programs relating to immune-mediated diseases and provides continuous patient-centered inpatient and outpatient care.
