But we at The Food Allergy Science Initiative (FASI)
are providing hope. Our goal is to eliminate that fear because we believe there is a cure to food allergies.
Through our work, we have uncovered a major new theory and research direction – the role of the nervous system in food allergies. Our world-renowned scientific experts from highly respected institutions have created an entirely new field of translational research that is transforming how we diagnose, treat and prevent food allergies.
In the last six years FASI’s world-renowned scientific experts have totally disrupted what scientists thought they knew about food allergies.
To solve food allergies, FASI’s new research field brings together experts not only in immunology, but also in neurology, cell biology, the microbiome and other arenas.
Our successes using this unique translational model of science have already led to significant breakthroughs in understanding why food allergies exist and we have engaged with biotech and pharmaceutical companies to achieve our ultimate goal of finding a cure. And that would mean everyone could eat without fear.
