Research Training in Allergy and Immunology at Massachusetts General Hospital

The goal of our training program is to train MD, MD/PhD and PhD postdoctoral fellows for independent investigative careers in Allergy and Immunology research.  Our program centers on our highly successful clinical fellowship in Adult and Pediatric Allergy and Immunology and strong laboratory programs in basic science allergy and immunology research. The goal of this Allergy and Immunology training program is to provide supervised laboratory research under the guidance of accomplished faculty members, along with structured training in immunology, allergy, molecular biology, genetics and ethical issues through courses and conferences.  We have outstanding highly accomplished mentors with laboratories at the MGH that are actively involved in basic science immunology research or health outcomes allergy research.  Altogether 12 MGH research faculty members participate in this Allergy and Immunology Training Program as mentors and 15 MGH clinical faculty members will participate in the training of MD fellows.  The participation of these faculty members offers an outstanding training opportunity in Allergy and Immunology research.  We have a balanced, integrated training program that offers high quality training in laboratory and clinical science research in Allergy and Immunology that successfully integrates both MD and PhD trainees and basic science and clinical faculty.  Our program will produce the next generation of physician-scientists and PhD scientists committed to allergy and immunology research.
