Dr Louise Michaelis is a Consultant and Associate lecturer in Paediatric Immunology and Allergy at The Great North Children’s Hospital Newcastle upon Tyne in the United Kingdom. She has previously worked at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Southampton University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust where she developed an interest in Multi-system Allergic Inflammatory Disease in Children and orchestrates clinics collaboratively with other specialities (atopic dermatitis, IgE and Non IgE-mediated food allergy, allergic asthma and allergic rhinoconjunctivitis). She currently works within a busy Tertiary Paediatric Allergy Service which provides a drug allergy (desensitisation) and immunotherapy (sublingual and subcutaneous) service for children.
Dr Michaelis is currently co-ordinating phase I, II and III MCRN Portfolio clinical trials and has started to evolve and publish a diverse research portfolio as part of her PhD under Prof Graham Roberts and Prof Hasan Arshad, which focuses on the immune and inflammatory mechanisms of tolerance in multi-system allergy in childhood. In February 2016 she was awarded an “NIHR Leading Principle Investigators Award” for her leadership of a Collaborative International Industry and Clinical Trials and in 2017 "The NIHR NENC Commercial Clinical Trial Team of the year Award" continues to bring both Industry and Clinical forums together in research. In 2017 the team was awarded the Bright Ideas in Health Award" for the MoSAIC Honeycomb Model of Seamless Care. She lectures on multisystem allergic inflammatory disease and the recent ASSIGN Study – An amino acid-based formula including specific synbiotics modifies the gut microbiota and reduces clinical symptoms in non-IgE-mediated cow’s milk allergic infants.
Dr Michaelis also participates in both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching forums having written her first book “Total revision – Extended Paediatrics” alongside Dr Ian Maconochie in 2005.
