Description of Clinical Expertise

Food allergy, eosinophilic esophagitis, obesity-associated asthma.

Description of Research Expertise

The Hill Lab studies the effects of obesity and metabolism on immune health and inflammatory diseases. We use the unique approach of leveraging clinical epidemiology to guide our mechanistic studies of the immune system in animal models and patient samples. Our goal is to translate our discoveries into the development of novel preventative, diagnostic, and therapeutic approaches for human disease.
