Molecular determinants of an allergic response

Project: Research

Project Description

A proportion of humans are prone to develop allergic reactions to innocuous environmental antigens (allergens), while others do not. This variability in responsiveness to allergens has been replicated in a standardised animal model which also allows detailed examination of the earliest, innate events active in allergen sensitisation. These studies will provide insights into the molecular pathways responsible for allergen reactivity in predisposed individuals, and offer new approaches for allergy vaccines.
