Avraham Beigelman’s clinical and research interests include childhood asthma and food allergy. Specifically, the lab is interested in the research of asthma among pre-school children. Among these young children, he is investigating the factors that modulate disease activity, and the approaches for treatment of acute wheezing episodes. Currently, the lab’s main research project is investigating whether we can prevent recurrent wheezing and potentially asthma, following severe RSV bronchiolitis. In addition, Beigelman is a co-investigator in the NHLBI’s AshmaNet network, which is a multi-centered network investigating therapeutic approaches to childhood asthma.
