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 has investigated the role of anaphylaxis simulation scenarios to ensure appropriate training of medical students and residents in the diagnosis and treatment of anaphylaxis. Stony Brook Children's Hospital served as a site for a nationwide multicenter study of monthly subcutaneous gamma globulin replacement for children with primary immunodeficiency disorders. Dr. Schuval is currently studying outcomes in Eosinophlilic Esophagitis.
