Department of Dermatology and Allergy, University of Bonn Medical Center, Bonn, Germany
Interests: Food Allergy; Food Chemistry; Allergy & Clinical Immunology; Food Science & Technology
The research field of food allergy is experiencing an important development with essential advances in the understanding of the pathophysiology of food allergy, sensitization routes, and the roles that specific immune cells, receptors, and pathways have in the initiation, development, and regulation of food allergies. Furthermore, novel insights on allergen characterization are not only providing advances in the description of new allergens and their properties, but they are also creating accurate maps of the epitopes that are highly recognized by IgE. The numerous advances that the research field of food allergy is currently experiencing, are creating potential for improved strategies in the diagnosis and treatment of food allergy.
Your contribution to this Special Issue, in which you are invited to share your findings and insights in the form of research articles, reviews, or short communications, will be a valuable asset and a compelling contribution that will potentially have an important impact on the field of food allergy.
