The Hill Lab

The Hill Lab studies how diet and metabolism influence immune health and inflammatory disease. Our goal is to make impactful discoveries that aid in the prevention, diagnosis, and/or treatment of food allergy, asthma, and metabolic inflammatory diseases, among other conditions. We are a multidisciplinary team of students, post-docs, staff scientists, and clinicians with diverse backgrounds and interests who enjoy collaborating to advance our understanding of human physiology and disease.

Our laboratory is part of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania / Perelman School of Medicine (Penn) and the Division of Allergy and Immunology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). We are active members of the Penn Institute for Immunology (IFI)Institute for Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism (IDOM), and Cardiovascular Institute (CVI). We are also members of the Penn Immunology and Cell and Molecular Biology graduate groups.
