Dr Chris Munro PhD MSc

Research Assistant

Role

Chris Munro is a Research Assistant working on Allerg-e-lab software development for the iFAAM project:

iFAAM, funded under the 7th Framework Programme will develop evidence-based approaches and tools for MANAGEMENT of ALLERGENS in FOOD and integrate knowledge derived from their application and new knowledge from intervention studies into FOOD ALLERGY MANAGEMENT plans and dietary advice. The resulting holistic strategies will reduce the burden of food allergies in Europe and beyond, whilst enabling the European food industry to compete in the global market place. Our approach will build on e-Health concepts to allow full exploitation of complex data obtained from the work in this project and previous and ongoing studies, maximising sharing and linkage of data, by developing an informatics platform “Allerg-e-lab”.
