Patients are the Why. Research is the How.
FARE, the world’s largest private funder of food allergy research, is driving innovation toward a new, more promising day. A day when patients don’t have to endure an oral food challenge to get a reliable diagnosis. When families don’t need to pack epinephrine auto-injectors every time they leave the house. When kids can attend a birthday party or class trip without fear of an emergency room visit. Toward that day, FARE is advancing breakthroughs in food allergy prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
Food allergy research and treatment are at a critical turning point. Emerging science and data point toward a new era in which new therapeutic options can help deliver the freedom and peace-of-mind that individuals with food allergy deserve. Through initiatives to develop innovative infrastructure for research, education and clinical care, FARE is committed to making effective, patient-centered approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treatment a reality.
Pioneering Advances in Diagnosis
In an era of molecular diagnostics/medicine, food allergy diagnostics lag behind. FARE is currently working on driving research and innovation to bring new diagnostic methods for food allergy. Learn more here about methods of diagnosis currently in use, and why better tools are essential to improving the lives of individuals and families managing food allergy.
Early Introduction of Food Allergens
During the past decade, research findings have transformed the guidance that pediatricians and allergists and immunologists give to parents about when to introduce common food allergens to children at high risk for food allergies. The far-reaching results of this research show how parents, caregivers and health care providers can fight the food allergy epidemic.
Developing Effective Treatments
Researchers are investigating exciting new ways to stop food allergy reactions or limit reaction symptoms to someday create more effective, better-tolerated treatments that are accessible to all living with food allergies. We are on the cusp of revolutionary changes in the food allergy treatment landscape.

Tomorrow's treatments rely on federal research funding and policy
32 million Americans are living with food allergies and the government spends only 19 cents per person on research. The Food Allergy Safety, Treatment, Education & Research (FASTER) Act, H.R. 2117, can provide crucial funding for food allergy research.Learn More
