Description of Clinical Expertise

Following a long career in the study of immune mediated diseases, my daughter, after graduating from Penn Medical School said to me "Dad, you have always liked people better than mice and test-tubes. Have you ever thought about a career in clinical medicine"? So I rethought my priorities and redirected my professional priorities. Now, my goal is to understand the complex relationships between theoretical and clinical allergy and immunology. This will allow me to work with my patients to promote mutual cooperation for the management of their allergies, asthma, immune deficiencies, and autoimmune reactions.
