Grant number: 1116107 | Funding period: 2016 - 2020
In Australia, grass pollen is the main outdoor trigger for hay fever and allergic asthma. This AusPollen project will build and evaluate our first standardised pollen monitoring network. Pollen alerts and healthcare information will be delivered to patients and doctors via websites and Apps. The AusPollen program was initiated with The Australasian Society for Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Asthma Australia, Stallergenes, the Bureau of Meteorology CSIRO and MeteoSwiss.
