Allergenicity prediction toolbox for novel foods

Project Details


The project aims to create a training programme for early-stage researchers to understand the fundamental mechanisms underlying food allergy and to improve the current allergenicity assessment of novel foods to expedite the introduction of novel foods to the market.

The group of A. Kuehn and C. Hilger will more specifically study the effect of weak/strong allergenic legume proteins in ex-vivo stimulation of immune cells from allergic and non-allergic subjects, to identify biomarkers for allergenicity prediction. The team will use an immune phenotyping approach, which was established successful in a recent PRIDE- and PMC-funded project. A. Kuehn will also be a WP-leader based on her expertise in molecular allergology.
