Under the leadership of Prof. Carsten Schmidt-Weber from the Institute of Allergy Research, Prof. Erika von Mutius from the Institute of Asthma and Allergy Prevention, Prof. Annette Peters from the Institute of Epidemiology and Prof. Claudia Traidl-Hoffmann from the Institute of Environmental Medicine are also involved in ‘ABROGATE’ on behalf of the Center. Furthermore, the following institutions are also contributing to this project: the Technical University of Munich, Klinikum rechts der Isar, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, University Hospital Augsburg, and the German Allergy and Asthma Association.

The project, which started on May 1 2021, thus combines the expertise of leading scientists in the field of allergy research and has a duration of three years with a total funding volume of 2.584 000 million Euros.  

The aim of the project is to contribute to a better understanding of the causes of food intolerances and to develop and test innovative diagnostic and therapeutic options. Furthermore, the translation of research results into practice is to be accelerated, and ultimately the health care of people with food intolerances is to be improved.

The ABROGATE project refers to the funding guideline ‘Interdisciplinary Research Associations on Food Intolerances’ of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), which is intended to take into account the importance of health policy and social significance of food intolerances.
