Supinda Bunyavanich, MD, MPH, MPhil is a Professor of Pediatrics, Professor of Genetics & Genomic Sciences, Associate Director of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute, and practicing Allergist/Immunologist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY. Dr. Bunyavanich’s NIH-funded research group combines tools in epidemiology, genomics, and sequence analysis to elucidate and understand the pathobiology of asthma and allergic diseases. Her lab works with human cohorts to identify risk factors, mechanisms, and potential therapies for these disorders using data science and integrative ‘omics approaches. Findings from her lab include their identification of a nasal biomarker of asthma by machine learning analyses of nasal transcriptome data, their characterization of the airway and gut microbiomes in asthma and food allergy, and their identification of master regulator genes of acute peanut allergic reactions. Dr. Bunyavanich earned her BA summa cum laude from Harvard University, MD from Harvard Medical School, MPhil from the University of Cambridge, and MPH from the Harvard School of Public Health.
