Welcome to the UAB Division of Pediatric Allergy & Immunology

Board-certified pediatric allergist/immunologists in the Division of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology specialize in the treatment of patients with IgE mediated diseases including asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, food allergy, urticaria, angioedema, and stinging insect and drug allergy.  In collaboration with physicians from the Division of Gastroenterology and Nutrition, allergists in the Division assist in the evaluation of patients with eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases such as Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE).  Division clinical immunologists diagnose and treat children with primary immune deficiencies including Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID), primary antibody deficiencies, phagocyte deficiencies and complement deficiencies.  Research interest include studies of T and B cell differentiation, mechanisms underlying immune deficiency syndromes, and immunologic abnormalities leading to autoimmunity.  Division faculty are engaged in research in the pathophysiology of asthma and allergic disease as well as primary immune deficiency and autoimmunity.
