Each day at SNP is a new challenge and learning opportunity! I think that working at SNP is the perfect way to synthesize my passion for helping people, my interest in immunology, and give back to the clinic credited to my personal success with peanut OIT! It’s exciting to now be a part of the team that improved my quality of life so dramatically, and I hope to do the same for everyone that comes into our clinic.

Special recognition

Andrew Long, Natasha Purington, and Vanitha Sampth

We would like to recognize the collective efforts of Natasha Purington, Vanitha Sampath and Andrew Long. They are an invaluable part of the team who help us share our research findings through data analysis and publications. Without their tireless efforts, we would not have been able to get 3 manuscripts published in the past several months. Thank you Natasha, Vanitha and Andrew!
