THE STORY:

Food Allergy Research & Education wrote -

Your gift today will help fund new research and accelerate the pace of important discoveries.

Here are just a few examples of funded research projects through the FARE Investigator in Food Allergy Awards

The FARE Investigator in Food Allergy Awards are designed to attract talent to the under-resourced field of food allergy research. In 2016, FARE committed $2.5 million to new and mid-career research scientists exploring food allergy origin and treatment.

These exciting and potentially life-saving projects include:

  • Creating a nasal spray vaccine that contains food allergens. Using the spray may suppress symptoms of food allergy.
  • Investigating whether bacteria interacting with food molecules in infants trigger food allergies.  This could help prevent the development of allergies by changing the bacteria in the intestines.
  • Determining how a life-threatening allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, occurs in the body. Understanding what leads to anaphylaxis helps us create new methods to prevent this reaction.
  • Examining whether food proteins eaten by a mother that wind up in breast milk might prevent food allergy in infants. Results may change diets for pregnant and nursing mothers and ultimately decrease food allergy in young children.
  • Studying why some immune cells react to peanuts. Peanut-specific cells may provide a new means to measure the severity of food allergy and help to evaluate treatments.

By giving today, you can help stop this emerging epidemic, protect our kids and save lives!
