In May 2006 the Australian Food Allergy Foundation (AFAF) was created to fund Australian scientific research into food allergies and anaphylaxis. This presentation, part of a series, highlights the world leading Australian research enabled by AFAF grants during our first ten years.

Dr Sara Prickett joined Monash University / Alfred Health as result of a grant from the foundation. Sara joined the allergy team led by Professor Robyn O’Hehir AO and Emeritus Professor Jennifer Rolland, which has created a world-first peanut allergy vaccine. With the vaccine now on the path to commercialisation through Aravax they are confident of a major global breakthrough in the treatment of peanut allergy once clinical trials begin.
