Boston Children’s Hospital is home to the world’s most extensive research enterprise at a pediatric hospital. We also have many partnerships with research, biotech and health care organizations, and we work together to find innovative ways to improve kids’ health.

Food allergy reactions are of increasing concern in the United States. About one fourth of all American households face restrictions in their diet due to a family member suffering from food allergies. Children appear particularly susceptible when dissecting the age group of peanut butter and cow milk allergic individuals. Research led by Children’s investigator Edda Fiebiger, PhD, hopes to define new strategies for diagnosis and treatment of children with allergic colitis and other food allergies.


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
