Focus of Work
Children with atopic (allergic) diseases often worsen at night and suffer from sleep disturbances. The extent to which children with allergies have problems sleeping is not well known. Our research team is uncovering the reason eczema worsens at night. Ultimately we plan to develop new approaches in treating allergic disease, while focusing on outcomes important to our patients and their families. We welcome collaborators and families who are interested in participating in our research studies.
