Adora Lin, M.D., Ph.D., is a pediatric allergist at Children's National Hospital. Her research focuses on the regulation of B cells and immunoglobulin production during the development of food allergy and tolerance to foods. She also investigates regulatory B cells in healthy children and those with allergic diseases. Dr. Lin's primary goal is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the development of food allergy vs. tolerance and to leverage these findings toward improved diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of food allergy and other allergic diseases.
Dr. Lin is under the mentorship of Dr. Catherine Bollard at Children's National and Dr. Pamela Guerrerio at the National Institutes of Health. She was awarded a Faculty Development Award from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology for promising junior faculty.
