Institute

The research of The Institute of Allergy Research (IAF) is focused on the understanding of mechanisms involved in the development of allergies and allergen tolerance in the context of genetic predisposition, immune system and environmental factors. As part of the Center of Allergy & Environment (ZAUM) the IAF conducts applied, clinical and basic research. The aim of the research is to understand the mechanisms of allergic diseases, to assess risks for the onset of allergy as well as to develop novel strategies for prevention und therapy. 

The Center for Allergy & Environment (ZAUM) in Munich is a hybrid institution build by the IAF at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich and the chair of Molecular Allergology of the School of Medicine, Technical University of Munich. This link of governmental research and university medicine, which is unique in the German research landscape, serves the interdisciplinary basic research and builds a link to the clinic and clinical studies. This translational approach enables new insights into molecular mechanisms of allergies and their translation into new strategies for their prevention and patient-tailored therapy.
