The National Allergy Research Centre is a nationwide centre established by the Danish EPA in 2001 to study the health effects of chemicals.
The centre's aim is to prevent allergies to chemicals in consumer products through research, monitoring and advice.
Tasks include determining:
The causes of contact allergy
The products, substances and concentrations that cause allergy
The levels that do not cause disease so that these may be implemented in legislation
The basic idea is to adapt the environment to allergics - not vice versa.
Collaboration & Leadership
The National Allergy Research Centre was established in cooperation between Dermato-allergological Department at Gentofte University Hospital and the Department of Dermtology at Odense University Hospital.
We work closely with the clinical units of the hospital departments dealing with allergies, as well as cooperating with specialists in skin diseases and a variety of research institutions in different capacities.
The National Allergy Research Centre isheaded by Professor and MD, Jeanne Duus Johansen, in cooperation with a steering group that includes representatives of the Environmental Protection Agency and The National Board of Health.
Assessment & Excellence
The National Allergy Research Centre was evaluated in 2004 by leading foreign allergy experts. Read the evaluation.
In 2010, the National Allergy Research Centre, as part of the Danish Allergy Centre, was awarded "Global Excellence in Health", which is a development program adopted by the Capital Region with the aim of promoting competent, professional environments of international excellence in the health area of the region's universities and hospitals.
