About us

Pediatric Asthma and Allergy Group

Allergic disorders include asthma, food allergy, eczema (atopic dermatitis) and allergic rhinitis. They have increased in prevalence in recent decades and now affect up to one in three adults and one in two children in economically developed countries.

A major aim of our research programme is to understand why so many children develop asthma and allergy, focusing on early life factors, both antenatal and postnatal. We are looking at both genetic and environmental factors.

Our group is also developing interventions to both prevent and treat asthma and allergic disease in childhood. We are working with a number of other groups within University of Southampton and with academic institutions across Europe and the US to deliver this programme.

We are also working on ways of helping children and teenagers to better manage their asthma and allergies.
