Join us to celebrate launch of the Frankland-Kay Centre for Allergy by the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London.

The aim of the new Centre is to bring together the strong adult and paediatric allergy clinical research teams based at St Mary’s and Royal Brompton hospitals, state-of-the-art experimental research laboratory and data science teams, together with the bioengineering and engineering teams at Imperial, to solve some of the key questions in reducing the impact of allergy on affected individuals and their families, with a particular focus on asthma and food allergy. Our emphasis is on collaborative working, both internally and with external partners including policymakers and patient bodies.

We are fortunate to have Professor Sir Stephen Holgate help us launch the Centre.

The talks with be followed by drinks and networking.
