His main research focus is the primary prevention of allergic disease in childhood. Investigation of human colostrum and mature breast milk immune-modulatory factors in relation to maternal health, nutrition and genotype and subsequent infant outcomes in relation to susceptibility to allergy. Later he has developed a strong interest in systematic evaluation of available evidence in paediatrics and child health.

Daniel leads The Core Outcome Measures for Food Allergy (COMFA) COST Action, approved by the EU commissioners in June 2019. This project is aiming to define the scope and applicability of food allergy Core Outcome sets and develop Core Outcome sets and measurement tools for food allergy.

Dr. Munblit is a member of the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Pediatric section board and a member of Paediatric Allergy Education & Training Committee (PA-ETC) at EAACI. He chairs PARANOID EAACI Task Force aiming to assess perceptions, beliefs, attitudes, and decision making in parents of children with allergic diseases. Daniel is a member of Education & Training, Food Allergy and Allergy Prevention Committees at World Allergy Organization (WAO).
