About

The EAACI Allergopharma Research Award was first established in 2000 on the initiative of Allergopharma Joachim Ganzer KG in collaboration with the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

Therefore, the award is open to EAACI Junior Members who have conducted their research in a European centre. More information on EAACI Junior Members you will find by clicking here. (“EAACI Junior Membership shall be available to all those who are aged 35 years or less at the time of renewal of their subscription.”)

    Janice Layhadi – PhD

    The awarded research project: “Precision Immunology And Biomarkers Of Allergy And Immunotherapy” and her research interest primarily involves identifying underpinning molecular mechanisms in innate lymphoid cells associated with immune tolerance. She has defined a new subset of innate lymphoid cells, IL-10+ ILC2, that are induced following allergen immunotherapy and correlate with clinical efficacy. Dr Layhadi leads the single-cell multi-omic research and has identified novel biomarkers for AIT response. Her research has resulted in several peer-reviewed publications in high-impact journals within the field of Allergy.
