Sujitha Amalanayagam ’10 co-authored an article published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (12/09). The article is titled “Epinephrine treatments is infrequent and biphasic reactions are rare in food-induced reactions during oral food challenges in children.” Among the other co-authors is Hugh A. Sampson ’71, chief of the Division of Allergy & Immunology in the Department of Pediatrics, director of the Jaffe Food Allergy Institute, and dean of Translational Biomedical Science at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

Amalanayagam said she obtained her research opportunity through networking. “I did an internship in the Pathology Department at Mount Sinai Hospital through a program called Mount Sinai Scholars during the summer before my freshman year,” she explained. “I kept in touch with my supervisors, and I continued to visit and volunteer there during school breaks.”

Amalanayagam recalled that two summers ago when she was seeking research exerrience, one of the doctors in the Pathology Department contacted some of his colleagues. “I was able to volunteer in the Allergy and Immunology Department,” she said, and “that is where I did the research that was written up for publication. It was a collaboration between the doctor I worked for and her colleagues.”
