The Christine Kühne – Center for Allergy Research and Education (CK-CARE) was launched in 2009 in Davos, Switzerland.
With the establishment of CK-CARE, one of Europe’s largest private initiatives in the field of allergology was launched.
The declared aim of CK-CARE is to promote research, education, and prevention in the field of allergies and improve the implementation of research results in clinical care for the benefit of affected patients.
Education is CK-CARE’s second pillar alongside research. Our goal is to translate the latest allergy research findings and deliver knowledge updates to physicians of different specialties as well as other relevant health care providers, who treat or have an interest in patients suffering from allergic diseases.
On 1 October 2020, Claudio Rhyner succeeded Dr. Georg Schäppi as Managing Director of CK-CARE. Georg Schäppi was appointed CEO at the University Children’s Hospital
