Elected 2022

Pamela Guerrerio, MD, PhD is Chief of the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in Bethesda, MD. Dr. Guerrerio graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. degree in biology from the University of Iowa and subsequently entered the Medical Scientist Training Program at Johns Hopkins University where she completed medical school and a PhD in human genetics. She did her residency in pediatrics and fellowship in allergy and immunology at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Dr. Guerrerio joined NIAID in 2014 and is currently a Senior Investigator and Chief of the Food Allergy Research Section. Her research program is focused on understanding the key genetic, immunologic, and biochemical pathways that lead to the development of food allergy, eosinophilic esophagitis, and other related diseases, and how this information can be translated into therapeutic benefit. Her group uses a multifaceted approach working with patients, human samples, and mouse models to perform basic, translational, and clinical studies. Her current efforts are focused on investigating the environmental and immunologic factors that influence the development and severity of food allergy, identifying new approaches for the prevention and treatment of food allergy, and identifying single gene disorders associated with an increased propensity for food allergy and other allergic conditions. Dr. Guerrerio has received a number of awards for her research, including the ARTrust Faculty Development Award from the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).
