Director, Allergy and Immunology Clinical Fellowship Program

Major Areas of Research

  • Clinical disorders of the immune system in children, including allergic diseases and immunodeficiency diseases
  • Atopic dermatitis and genetic disorders of allergic inflammation
  • Genetic disorders of mast-cell homeostasis and activation in children and adults
  • Graduate medical education in clinical immunology and allergy

Program Description

Dr. Stone is the program director of the Allergy and Immunology Clinical Training Program.

Dr. Stone serves as a principal investigator on two protocols to support laboratory interests in the genetics and mechanisms of allergic inflammation in atopic dermatitis, severe atopic diseases, genetic disorders with features of allergic inflammation, and immunodeficiency diseases. He serves as a staff clinician working closely with the Allergic Inflammation Unit and the Mast Cell Biology Section of the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases (LAD), with a major interest in the advancement of research and clinical care for children with atopic dermatitis and other allergic and immunologic diseases.

Kelly Stone and an NIAID research team have found that wet wrap therapy combined with education on long-term skin care can dramatically improve the lives of children with severe eczema.
