The Division of Allergy, Immunology and Pulmonary Medicine at Vanderbilt supports a robust and growing research program focused on clinical research to help understand and improve the care of children with asthma. Clinical and translational research efforts are directed at the pathogenesis of asthma in early life and approaches to asthma management throughout childhood, including multi-center federally funded clinical trials in asthma.
The Clinical/Translational Research Coordinator III will be an integral member of the Vanderbilt site of a nationwide NIH-sponsored study enrolling pregnant women and following them and their offspring for at least 3 years to better understand the factors that lead to the development of allergies, with a particular emphasis on food allergies.
