About SeaFAC
The vision of the Seattle Food Allergy Consortium (SeaFAC) is to combine clinical expertise, research and education resources in the Seattle community to find a cure for food allergy, a rapidly increasing public health problem. Our member institutions include ASTHMA Inc Clinical Research Center/Northwest Allergy & Asthma Center, Benaroya Research Institute/ Virginia Mason Medical Center, Seattle Children’s Hospital/Seattle Children’s Research Institute, and UW Medicine. By combining Seattle-area resources, including outstanding basic and translational research in food allergy, pediatric/adult clinical research centers and an allergy/immunology training program, SeaFAC will create a world-class food allergy center locally. Together, the consortium will be very competitive in the federal and non-federal funding environment, and bring together leading clinicians, researchers and educators to revolutionize food allergy care and research.
