Christine Kühne – Center for Allergy Research and Education (CK-CARE)

In 2009, the Kühne Foundation has launched the Christine Kühne – Center for Allergy Research and Education (CK-CARE) with locations in Davos, Munich and Zurich with the aim of establishing highly qualified and well-connected research work in the field of allergies. This created one of the largest private initiatives in Europe in the field of allergology. In 2014, after a successful external evaluation by international experts of the services provided, CK-CARE was expanded to the locations of Bonn, Augsburg and St. Gallen.

Deficits in the areas of diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of people with allergic disorders are being redressed through research and education, making an important contribution to patients’ long-term well being. Forming a unique alliance of international experts and locations, CK-CARE is at present focusing particularly on research into, and treatment of, neurodermatitis.


CK-CARE, Christine Kühne – Center for Allergy Research and Education, is a programm of the Kühne Foundation without commercial interest and industry sponsoring.
