Awarded Research Grants

November 2016 -  ausEE has awarded grant funding of $8,000 to Dr Hamish Philpott, Dr Evan Dellon and Dr Sanjay Nandurkar for the research project 'Antigen presentation and acute inflammation in EoE'. This project has the potential to streamline the diagnosis and treatment of patients who present with oesophageal eosinophilia. 

March 2016 - ausEE has donated $20,000 of its research funds supporting a new study from The University of Newcastle. This study aims to develop new treatments for Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EoE) and other eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders (EGIDs). Currently there are few options for the management of these conditions. This study aims to create new targeted drug delivery therapies through the use of nanotechnology. The study is being conducted at the University of Newcastle, Hunter Medical Research Institute and John Hunter Hospital, and should be complete within the next two years. We look forward to sharing the results with you.

June 2015 - ausEE has awarded the Royal Prince Alfred Clinical Immunology & Serology team a grant of $8,000 towards its latest research into EoE.

Their research will take blood samples from adult patients before, during and after their treatment in the hopes of identifying certain biomarkers in the blood in order to help detect foods that may be associated with the activation of EoE. If successful it could help in the selection of appropriate dietary restrictions with a blood test, rather than an invasive endoscopy. Although the study focuses on adults with EoE, the results could point specialists in the right direction for EoE management for all ages.
