Biographical details

A/Prof Paul Turner is MRC Clinician Scientist and Senior Clinical Lecturer in Paediatric Allergy & Immunology within the MRC & Asthma UK Centre in Allergic Mechanisms at Imperial College London. He is also a member of faculty for the Masters of Medicine at the University of Sydney, Australia.

In 2012 Paul was awarded a UK Medical Research Council Fellowship, to assess mechanisms of acute allergic reactions to peanut. His research centres on the pathophysiology of severe allergic reactions to food, and how this impacts upon allergen risk management and the use of precautionary allergen labelling. He is CI for the multicentre SNIFFLE studies which have assessed influenza vaccine safety in egg-allergic children, funded by the UK Department of Health, and in conjunction with colleagues (Prof Dianne Campbell, Dr Sam Mehr, Dr Melanie Wong) is developing a research programme on the use of modified food proteins to induce oral tolerance in children with food allergy. Paul is an Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Allergy & Immunology at a number of London teaching hospitals, including St Mary's, the Royal Free and the Royal Brompton.
