About Our Pulmonary and Allergy Research

Finding new ways to treat and prevent lung disease in children and adults

Worldwide, lung infections are the number-one cause of death among children. Recognizing that the susceptibility to respiratory infections is an interplay between microbe and host, researchers at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC are leading the charge against respiratory illness on multiple fronts: from asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis and tuberculosis to sleep disorders and exotic conditions such as pulmonary lymphangiectasia and plastic bronchitis.

Building a pipeline of new treatments for food allergies in children

Children's Hospital is a Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) Center of Excellence and founding member of the FARE Clinical Network.

FARE chose Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and 21 others from across the nation, based on each hospital's standards of care for food allergy patients and leadership in applying new evidence-based practices.

As members of the FARE Clinical Network, the 22 Centers of Excellence will:

  • Become major sites for clinical food allergy research.
  • Build a "robust pipeline of new therapies" for children with food allergies.
  • Develop a national registry and biorepositories of food allergy patients.
