Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research/AllerGen Research Fellowship
In 2010, a nationwide, AllerGen-supported study revealed that approximately 2.6 million Canadians, or approximately 7.5% of the population, suffer from a self-reported food allergy.
This Fellowship Award allows young Canadian investigators (PhD or MD) with an interest in the prevention and treatment of severe food allergies to pursue academic research training in the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University under the leadership of Dr. Kari Nadeau, a global leader in allergic disease research. The award provides a salary/stipend of up to $50,000 US for one year, with the possibility for renewal based on performance and available funding.
The Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy & Asthma Research at Stanford University is the first center of its kind, aiming to not only find better treatments for children and adults with allergies, but to discover underlying immune mechanisms against the disease and develop a lasting cure.
