Mayo Clinic's commitment to allergy research dates to the 1950s when doctors in Minnesota demonstrated the usefulness of the newly discovered glucocorticoids in treating certain allergy and asthma problems.
The Allergic Diseases Research Laboratory investigates the mechanisms of common airway and skin diseases, such as asthma, hay fever, atopic dermatitis and chronic rhinosinusitis.
