Meeting the national demand for advances in the treatment of allergies, asthma and related allergic and immunologic disorders.
Providing clinical excellence and compassionate care to patients from around the world.
Teaching the next generation of asthma and allergy experts.
The highly regarded faculty and staff at the Johns Hopkins Division of Allergy & Clinical Immunology are meeting these and other challenges in the 21st century. The physicians and faculty in the Division of Allergy & Clinical Immunology are devoting their careers to research, diagnosis and treatment of allergic and hypersensitivity problems, asthma and other allergic and immunologic diseases. All of our board-certified allergists are experts in allergy-immunology, and most of them have special interests, which focus their practice on particular disorders. What this means for our patients is that they can count on the division’s doctors not only for their depth of medical knowledge, but also for being cared for in a rich scientific environment where innovative treatments and diagnostic procedures are being evaluated. This scientific grounding is hopefully coupled with a compassionate approach to providing needed care efficiently and co-operatively The Dermatology, Allergy and Clinical Immunology (DACI) Reference Laboratory, located in the Asthma & Allergy Center, is a full-service laboratory that provides specialized diagnostic measurements to allergists, dermatologists, and clinical immunologists.
