SoCal Food Allergy is home to basic science research focused on food allergic disease. Research at the level of DNA, RNA, immune cells, and more are critical to the development of newer treatments for food allergy. We are particularly focused on the development of newer biomarkers which can predict and reflect short-term molecular changes and long-term impact changes toward immune system tolerance. Such markers are currently not available. With the advent of such markers, patients undergoing immunotherapy can receive appropriate changes to treatment regimens to maximize molecular and clinical outcomes.
