Research Interests

  • Through the efforts of Dr. Lockey, the Division is endowed with $12 million dollars dedicated to teaching and research. Dr. Lockey supervises a basic research laboratory in which state-of-the-art molecular biology is carried out in an attempt to find long term treatments and even a cure for allergic diseases and asthma. In addition, he oversees the Divisions Clinical Research Unit, which has participated in most major drug innovations for the treatment of allergic diseases and asthma over the past 30 years.
