Seattle Allergy & Asthma Research Institute, previously ASTHMA Inc. Clinical Research Center, was founded in 1972 by two physicians from Northwest Asthma & Allergy Center (NAAC) who wanted to advance investigation and treatments in allergy, asthma and immunology.
Today, the institute is comprised of a broad team of dedicated allergy and immunology specialists, nurses and research coordinators all working together as a cohesive team to conduct clinical allergy research in the Seattle area. All Institute’s physicians are affiliated with University of Washington School of Medicine and Seattle Children’s Hospital and we have an active partnership with both these institutions.
To this day, we honor our original mission: to conduct high quality research to improve understanding and treatment of allergies, asthma and other diseases for patients everywhere.
We are proud to be the go-to research facility for the research and development divisions of major pharmaceutical companies as well as numerous high profile organizations, including the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). We support them with careful medical research and have completed more than 500 FDA-approved clinical trials to date.
