About Us

Our Founder
Dr. Inderpal Randhawa

Dr. Inderpal Randhawa is a leading clinical academic scientist with five board certifications in transplant immunology, allergy, pulmonology, pediatrics, and internal medicine. Early in his career, Dr. Randhawa began to question conventional protocols for the treatment of life-threatening food allergies. Distressed by watching parents suffer the loss of a child to fatal allergic reactions, he proposed to find groundbreaking solutions and change the status quo. His early experience in lung transplant immunology coupled with his collaboration with national allergy and immunology specialists, led him to develop the safe, targeted solutions now offered through the Food Allergy Institute (FAI).

FAI was founded in 2015 by Dr. Inderpal Randhawa, the Food Allergy Institute is a cutting-edge clinical care and research center that is revolutionizing food allergy treatment.
