Fund Food Allergy Research

Every day, all around the world, millions of children live with the burden of severe food allergies. They sit at separate lunch tables, carry EpiPens as lifelines, and go to birthday parties only to watch the cake from afar. No meal or snack is simple – food always represents a potential danger. Young people and their families are in desperate need of better treatments for these potentially deadly conditions. 

At Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, one doctor is leading the charge to change that. For the past 15 years, Dr. Robert Wood has worked at the forefront of the quest to cure pediatric food allergies. A world leader, Dr. Wood has been among the first to study multiple novel treatments for food allergy, including oral immunotherapy, sublingual immunotherapy, and several new vaccines he is helping to develop. In fact, Dr. Wood and his team conducted the world’s first double-blind, placebo-controlled study of oral immunotherapy, a treatment that has shown great promise for children with severe allergies to eggs, milk, peanuts and wheat. 

With your help, Dr. Wood and his team can improve the lives of countless numbers of children affected by food allergies.
