Professor Stephen Till
Allergy is an academic subject and one of the strengths of the College and Trust. The Trust was a founding centre for specialist allergy training and has a national reputation for the extent and excellence of its allergy service. It is currently the largest such service in the UK, and one of the largest in Europe. The academic and translational output of the department is outstanding. Our record of training Allergy specialist trainees and academic fellows is exemplary. All our clinical trainees are encouraged to contribute to the refining and development of clinical management and diagnostic pathways in adult allergy.
As part of the training programme, trainees are fostered in an ideal research environment with support from peers both within the College and the Trust allergy service and collaborations further afield.
Trainees will be encouraged to take the opportunity to participate in basic/translational research themes. These include allergen immunotherapy, urticaria, food allergy and mechanisms of mast cell activation. They will also be integrated within clinical posts serving our wide range of adult allergy services.
