Allergy is an extremely academic subject and one of the strengths of the College and Trust. The Trust was a founding centre for allergy trainees and has a national reputation for the extent and excellence of its allergy service. The academic and translational output of the department and the grant raising record is outstanding. Our record of training Allergy SpRs and academic fellows is exemplary. All our SpRs re encouraged to contribute to the refining and development of clinical management and diagnostic pathways in adult allergy.
As part of the training programme, the trainees are fostered in an ideal research environment with abundant support from peers both within the College and across the Asthma UK Centre for Mechanisms of Asthma, the Trust tertiary referral severe asthma and biologicals service and collaborations further afield.
Trainees will usually take part in one of our intercalated basic/translational research themes covering IgE structure and function, vitamin D biology, genomics and epigenomics, allergen immunotherapy, peanut desensitisation in allergic adults and T-lymphocyte and smooth muscle biology. They will be integrated within clinical posts serving our wide range of adult allergy services.
