Food Allergy Research Centers

I mentioned CoFAR in my previous post discussing the possible relationship between milk and egg allergy to peanut allergy. CoFAR (Consortium of Food Allergy Research) is a network of food allergy centers that includes Duke University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, National Jewish Research & Medical Center, and University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences.

This consortium was established in July 2005 by the National Institute of Health to conduct multi-center clinical studies and basic research towards further understanding of food allergies.

Each site can be contacted directly for those interested in participating in a food allergy study or assisting in some other way.
