Allergy and immunology research is as vital as ever. It may help someone like Sarah.
Sarah had been living with the fear of a severe allergic reaction to peanuts. Recently she has been part of a trial led by Professor Mimi Tang at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) in Melbourne. AIFA awarded Professor Tang the Ann Kupa Food Allergy Research Grant in 2021 to extend this work. This grant will fund a study investigating the underlying mechanisms that support remission of allergy, which will lead to better long-term treatments for peanut allergy.
In 2022 a total of $110,000 will be awarded as four AIFA Grants

$25,000 AIFA Early Career Researcher Grant
