Research area/interests: 
The CHILD study is a birth cohort study aimed at understanding the root causes of asthma, allergy and the development of chronic disease. Children, now age 8 years, have been followed along with their mothers since early pregnancy. Children have been exquisitely phenotyped for asthma and allergy and have provided repeated biological samples since early life. Unique to this study is the extensive objective measures obtained in allergy (skin prick testing) since infancy as well as lung function that has been repeated since infancy.
