Biographical details

Professor Dianne Campbell is the Chair of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at Children┬┐s Hospital Westmead, Sydney and immediate past Head of the Discipline of Paediatrics and Child Health, Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney. She is the current Chair of the Paediatric Subcommittee for Australian Society for Clinical Allergy and Immunology (ASCIA). She is a member of the WUN in-FLAME network and a CI in the NHMRC centre for research excellent in Paediatric Food Allergy. She completed a PhD at Melbourne University and subsequently held a postdoctoral position at Stanford University, researching in the field of childhood atopic disease (atopic dermatitis and asthma). She has extensive experience in overseeing and developing paediatric graduate and postgraduate curriculum.
She has active roles in clinical Allergy and Immunology, Allergy research and Medical Education. Current research areas include: Mechanisms and treatment of childhood atopic dermatitis which focus on T regulatory cell dysfunction in atopic dermatitis; the immuno-biology of FPIES and; the primary prevention and induction of tolerance in food allergy.

Current projects

Professor Dianne Campbell is currently CIB on two NHMRC project grants- Molecular characterisation of Fish allergy in Australian children (1086658) and Food Allergy and Pertussis (1079753). Other current research projects include: CIA- BEAT study (Ilhan funded study to examine the role of early introduction of egg in infants at high risk of food allergy). CIA- VIT D in Eczema (A study examining the therapeutic and immunological effects of Vitamin D therapy in children atopic dermatitis). CIB- Understanding the immunobiology of FPIES and Population surveillance of FPIES in Australia. She is currently the lead coordinator on an ASCIA/CRE sponsored project which aims to collect food challenge outcome data Australasian wide, with the aim of informing evidenced based management of food Allergy for Australasian children.
