Welcome to the Duke Asthma Allergy and Airway Center
An interdisciplinary center of the Departments Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, dedicated to research, education and clinical care for patients with asthma, allergic diseases and airway disease, including lung, upper airway and skin allergies, mass cell disorders, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), bronchiectasis and immunodeficiencies.
The Duke Asthma, Allergy, and Airways Center brings together specialists in lung disease, allergy and immunology and lung diseases to offer treatment to adults and children in a caring environment at a site conveniently located in Durham, but still a part of Duke University Medical Center. In addition to comprehensive medical care, it is our goal to educate patients so that they are empowered to control their disease. As part of Duke’s mission to increase medical knowledge, the Center was also planned as a hub of patient-centered allergy, asthma, airway and immunodeficiency research efforts. We want to better understand airway and allergic diseases and to evaluate new treatment options for patients with immunodeficiencies, allergic disorders, asthma and other airway diseases therapies. Therefore, we carry out research in these areas to ultimately improve the lives of our patients. Read more about our clinical services and research.
The Duke Asthma, Allergy, and Airway Center will
1. Provide state-of-the art clinical care for patients with asthma, allergic diseases, airway disease and immunodeficiencies.
2. Provide education for patients and families in the treatment of airway diseases, allergy and immunodeficiencies syndromes in patients of all ages, including:
- Allergic diseases of the lung, nose, gut, and skin
- Immunodeficiency syndromes
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Sleep Disorders
3. Conduct clinical and translational research studies evaluating new therapies, contributing factors, and science of airway disease. The goal of this research is to improve the health of patients.
