About the Author

Alan A. Wanderer, M.D. is a graduate of Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. His medical training included an internship at Bellevue Hospital-Columbia Internal Medical Division, pediatric residency at Cornell Medical School and fellowship in allergy, asthma, and clinical immunology at National Jewish Center, Denver, Colorado. He is board certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. He was on the faculty of National Jewish Center and is currently a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics and Allergy at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. Dr. Wanderer has authored numerous articles on allergy-clinical immunology subjects, particularly on the subject of urticaria (hives). Much of his research has concentrated on the mechanisms and therapy of a reproducible type of hives induced by cold, namely acquired cold urticaria. His collaboration with Dr. Hal Hoffman has led to the identification of the gene that is responsible for an inherited cold sensitivity disorder. He was lead author of recently published practice parameter guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of urticaria and angioedema that was sponsored by the Joint Task Force of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. His expertise in these medical conditions is recognized nationally and internationally.

Dr. Wanderer is a partner of the Allergy and Asthma Consultants of the Rockies, an allergy, asthma and clinical immunology practice located in Denver, Colorado and Bozeman, Montana
