Research And Education

Stony Brook Children's Allergy & Immunology photo

Research and teaching are important elements of Stony Brook Children’s Allergy and Immunology program. As Suffolk County's only academic medical institution, Stony Brook is committed to training the next generation of physicians. Pediatric and Internal Medicine residents rotate through Allergy/Immunology, gaining valuable experience in state-of-the-art medicine. Dr. Schuval is currently investigating the role of the anaphylaxis simulation scenarios in the teaching curriculum to ensure appropriate training of medical students in the diagnosis and treatment of anaphylaxis. As of fall, 2017, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital will be a site for a multicenter study of monthly subcutaneous gamma globulin replacement for children with primary immunodeficiency disorders.  We will also be participating in a New York State study that will offer genetic testing to children with abnormal newborn screening test for Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID).
