  • Asthma and Allergic Diseases Cooperative Research Centers: In 1971, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) established its Asthma and Allergic Diseases Centers to conduct basic and clinical research on the mechanisms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of asthma and allergic diseases.
  • Immune Tolerance Network (ITN): The ITN is an international consortium of investigators in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia dedicated to the development and evaluation of novel, tolerance-inducing therapies in such disorders as asthma and allergic rhinitis.
  • Inner-City Asthma Consortium: Since 1991, the NIAID has funded research on asthma in inner-city areas with the goal of improving the treatment of children living in environments where the prevalence and severity of asthma is particularly high.
  • Allergen Epitope Research and Validation Centers: The goal of this NIAID program is to identify the portions of allergy-inducing molecules that immune system cells and IgE antibodies recognize, and to develop therapies that block these portions from causing allergic reactions.
