In addition to seeing patients in the clinical setting, Dr. Sur has been funded from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to conduct research to define the mechanism of allergic sensitization and asthma using molecular tools and novel proteomic approaches, and determine environmental factors contributing to this process. He has served on numerous expert panels, including the International Eosinophil Society, and the NIH study sections that evaluated scientific research in allergic diseases. He is a highly sought-after mentor for students and fellows in medicine, in basic science and in clinical research.
