Research opportunities for the allergic community

Research into serious allergies can only happen with your support. This can provide the opportunity for you to share your experiences of living with serious allergies or being the parent/carer of a child with serious allergies.

Sign up to our monthly newsletter to be the first to hear about opportunities to get involved with. These could include:

  • completing research surveys  
  • participating in focus groups
  • clinical trials

Research opportunities

Do you attend outdoor events & have a special dietary requirement?

Researchers from the University of the West of England (UWE) are seeking individuals with food intolerances, allergies, or special dietary requirements to participate in their study focusing on experiences at outdoor events.

Do you come from a South Asian background & have a food allergy?

If you identify as coming from a South Asian background, researchers from the University of Birmingham and Surrey and the NHS are keen to hear about your experiences of living with food allergies.

Share your experiences navigating safe food choices for you or your child

A group of health care professionals and patient representatives have created a Task Force on Food Allergen Ingestion Risk (‘FAIR’) within the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI). This Task Force is working to better understand the challenges and needs of patients and families living with food allergies when trying to make safe food choices. The ultimate aim of this Task Force is to help make things safer for people living with food allergy.

Research project seeks individuals with food allergies or intolerances

If you have experienced food allergies or intolerances and are willing to share your experiences, please consider participating in this survey.  The research focuses on investigating potential correlations between the onset of food allergies and intolerances and adverse life experiences. Additionally, the research aims to explore how allergies impact overall quality of life.
