Contact

Interested participants may call our research coordinator, Barbara Johnson, R.N. at (585) 275-8991.

The “Development of Mucosal and Systemic Immunity and Risk of Food Allergy” study is recruiting mother-infant pairs prenatally or immediately postnatally for a cohort study to assess the development of microbiome, infant immune system and allergic diseases in the first 2 years of life. We are interested in enrolling infants born to families with a parent(s) or older sibling(s) with allergic diseases, especially food allergy, in the Greater Rochester area. We are also enrolling infants born in the Old Order Mennonite community in Penn Yan, the Yates County (Finger Lakes), who have a low risk of developing allergic diseases.
