What we are looking for
The goal is to create an alternative for OFC that is highly sensitive and specific and has the potential to identify multiple allergens. It is easy to use, does not depend on sophisticated instrumentation, and provides clear results that are reproducible.
The multi-pronged approach allows the exploration of several options simultaneously. There will be maximum flexibility to pursue the most promising options, along with head-to-head comparisons and collaboration across multiple sites. The strategy is results-driven with staged investments with future support contingent on progress.
