Cathryn Nagler

University of Chicago

Cathryn R. Nagler is the Bunning Food Allergy Professor and Professor of Pathology, Medicine, Pediatrics and The College at The University of Chicago. She graduated with honors from Barnard College, Columbia University, obtained her Ph.D. from the Sackler Institute of Biomedical Science at N.Y.U. School of Medicine and did a postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She was Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Immunology) at Harvard Medical School prior to joining the University of Chicago in 2009. Dr. Nagler has participated in numerous review panels for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, NIDDK and NIAID, including the Food Allergy Expert Panel. She has served the American Association of Immunologists as Section Editor for the Journal of Immunology, Instructor (Mucosal Immunology) for the Introduction to Immunology course and as member of the Program, Clinical Immunology, Publications and Awards Committees. Dr. Nagler has a long-standing interest in the mechanisms governing tolerance to dietary antigens and the potential immunomodulatory features of this route of antigen administration. Her most recent work examines how intestinal bacteria regulate susceptibility to allergic responses to food. In 2016 Dr. Nagler co-founded ClostraBio, a new company dedicated to developing novel microbiome-modulating therapeutic interventions for the prevention and treatment of food allergy.
