The Consortium of Food Allergy Research (CoFAR) "was established to conduct multi-center clinical trials, observational studies, mechanistic studies and basic research towards further understanding of the best possible treatment approaches for food allergies.

CoFAR was established through a grant provided by NIH/NIAID/DAIT to Dr. Hugh Sampson, at Mount Sinai Medical Center, and to The EMMES Corporation.  Mount Sinai is the Lead Clinical Center and EMMES is the Statistical and Clinical Coordinating Center (SACCC) for the study."
