New Look and a new name for the SAGE Blog!
The SAGE blog is now the AGE blog!
The blog remains a great place to read about current research related to asthma, allergies, genes, and the environment, but will now also include information obtained through other related research, such as the CHILD Study (The Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development Study ) and CAPPS (Canadian Asthma Primary Prevention Study). Information will be posted about studies done by world renown researchers right here at home and from around the world.
