Dr. Eggleston began his pediatric training in 1965 at Vanderbilt and finished it at the University of Washington where he became chief resident in 1969.

After completing a fellowship in Allergy/Immunology, he moved to the University of Virginia where he founded its pediatric allergy program.

Dr. Lederman joined Jerry Winkelstein at Hopkins Children’s in 1981 to establish the pediatric allergy program and to devote more time to his allergy research.

Dr. Eggleston’s research interests have ranged from the mechanisms of exercise-induced asthma and allergen immunotherapy in childhood asthma to the mechanisms of environmental-immunology in asthma, with a strong focus on inner-city children.

He retired in 2006, but continues to be actively involved in the division as a part-time faculty member.
