Research Topics

Dr. Stone is the program director of the Allergy and Immunology Clinical Training Program.

Dr. Stone serves as a principal investigator on two protocols to support laboratory interests in the genetics and mechanisms of allergic inflammation in atopic dermatitis, severe atopic diseases, genetic disorders with features of allergic inflammation, and immunodeficiency diseases. He serves as a staff clinician working closely with Dr. Joshua Milner and the Genetics and Pathophysiology of Allergy Section of the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases, with a major interest in the advancement of research and clinical care for children with atopic dermatitis and other allergic and immunologic diseases.


Dr. Stone received his M.D. and Ph.D. in molecular and cell biology from the University of Maryland; completed residency training in pediatrics at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC; and completed fellowship training in allergy and immunology at Children’s Hospital Boston. He served on the faculty in the department of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Children’s Hospital Boston and at Children’s National Medical Center and George Washington University. He joined the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases in 2007, where he serves as deputy chief; director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center Allergy and Immunology Clinical Fellowship Program; and director of the NIH Clinical Center Allergy and Immunology Consultation Service.

Dr. Stone is a Fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology and American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Clinical Immunology Society.
