Knowledge hub

The CFAR knowledge hub is designed to keep the research community and families informed about the latest food allergy news, publications, events and resources.

Since our inception in 2013, CFAR has worked with our partner organisations on the translation of research findings into population health guidelines and improved clinical care.
