Food Allergy Center

Tackling One of the Biggest Challenges in Science

Food allergy is a rising epidemic that affects 1 in 13 children.

It's a deadly disease for which we do not know the cause, how to prevent it, or how to treat it.

Its significance is undervalued and misunderstood by the general public.

It takes a daily emotional and financial toll on those who have it or love people who do.

It's time to do more.

At the Mary H. Weiser Food Allergy Center, we're just getting started. All of us envision a world one day where people with food allergy will not have to fear what they eat. We are ready to make that happen through leading-edge biomedical science.
