Food should be social. Food should be fun. Unfortunately, for the millions living with food allergy, food is often anything but fun. Words like anxiety, stressful, expensive, and dangerous come to mind instead. The UNC Food Allergy Initiative is dedicated to improving the lives of patients and families living with food allergy. With our team of experts in clinical trials, immune lab techniques, and immunotherapy manufacturing, we have two primary goals, understanding the immune mechanisms that cause food allergy, and using this knowledge towards the development of treatments for food allergy.
