Network Researchers Database


Search the Network Researchers Database to learn about the scientists and practitioners who are participating in, or have participated in, AllerGen-funded project(s). You can also meet some of these researchers on AllerGen’s YouTube channel.

This database lists all project participants: AllerGen Investigators as well as project collaborators.

See the AllerGen Investigators Database for only those researchers with formal status as AllerGen-affiliated Investigators, and the AllerGen Collaborators Database for only project collaborators.

This database can be sorted and/or searched by any data field.
