Dr. Keet conducts clinical and translational research aimed at better understanding and treating pediatric allergic diseases, particularly food allergies.
As a fellow, with the mentorship of Dr. Robert Wood, she had two significant projects that focused on different aspects of food allergy. The first used the large patient population of the division to evaluate the natural history of wheat allergy. The second, ongoing project is a clinical trial comparing sublingual and oral immunotherapy for treatment of milk allergy in children.
Her current research projects focus on immunotherapy for food allergies, the epidemiology of food allergies and improving food allergy diagnostics.
