Network members are actively engaged in both clinical and translational research into children’s allergies and anaphylaxis, as well as new methods of teaching. A number of members are affiliated with Universities in the North West of England, particularly the University of Manchester.

Self-funding students wishing to embark on post-graduate degrees (MD or PhD) with Network members are invited to contact the Network Administrator attaching their up to date CV.
