Adam Fox is a paediatric allergy consultant[2] and a child allergy specialist.[3] He is President of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology,[4] and he won the Raymond Horton-Smith Prize in 2012 for his doctoral thesis.[5]

Education and career[edit]

Fox read medicine and neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and completed his clinical training at University College London. Initially, Fox trained as a general paediatrician. However, he decided to specialise in paediatric allergies whilst doing his Master's in clinical paediatrics at Great Ormond St Hospital.[6] Fox took a specialist registrar post at St Mary's Hospital, London, which at the time was the only dedicated paediatric allergy research centre. Here, he became further specialised as a tertiary paediatric allergist.[7]

Fox spent nine years as the clinical lead of Allergy at Guy's & St Thomas' Hospitals, London and a further three years as their clinical director for Specialist ambulatory medicine.[8] He is currently the Commercial Medical Director for the hospital's NHS Foundation Trust.[9]

He helped lead the access of UK patients to treatments such as sublingual immunotherapy, established the largest NHS Children's clinic for this treatment.[4] Fox was the senior author of the International Milk Allergy in Primary Care (iMAP) guideline, published in 2017 and updated in 2019.[8]

In 2012 Cambridge University awarded him the Raymond Horton-Smith Prize for his doctoral thesis on peanut allergies,[5]

In 2018, the British Society of Clinical Immunology elected Fox as their president.[8]
