More recently he has established the first world-wide cohort to assess children with suspected antibiotic allergy through graded challenges and together with Dr Bruce Mazer established the first rigorously designed and evaluated program in Canada for milk desensitization and more recently they have established protocols for peanut , tree nut and egg desensitization.  He has established the largest cross- Canada registries that collect data on the diagnosis and management of food allergy, anaphylaxis , drug allergy , anaphylaxis, mast cell disorders and primary immunodeficiencies.  His research has resulted in more than 100 published manuscripts. His work on the diagnostic approach of antibiotic allergy in children has led to a fundamental shift in clinical practice for the diagnosis and management of amoxicillin allergies in children. This study was named a top 10 publications worldwide for Pediatrics in 2016 by the New England Journal of Medicine Journal Watch and in 2019  he has been funded by the Canadian Institute of Health research to continue and explore this important topic.
