Talal Imad Mousallem
Associate Professor of Pediatrics

I am an allergist and immunologist who cares for children. I manage patients with primary immunodeficiency and different allergic diseases. This includes managing patients with recurrent infections, allergic rhinitis, asthma, food allergy, drug allergy, stinging insect hypersensitivity, urticaria/ angioedema, and allergic skin disease. I also see patients with abnormal severe combined immunodeficiency newborn screen results.

Current Research Interests

My area of research interest is immunogenetics. To date, there are more than 350 different primary immunodeficiencies described in the scientific literature. In some cases, the molecular defect remains unknown. The focus of my research work is investigating the genetic cause of primary immunodeficiency diseases using next-generation sequencing technology in patients where the molecular defect (genetic cause) remains unknown.
