Sameer Mathur, MD, PhD, is an allergist and immunologist at UW Health and an associate professor in the Department of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine. He treats adults with a variety of allergic conditions, including allergic rhinitis, asthma, diseases of the esophagus, hives, food allergies, drug allergies and some types of immune deficiencies.
When working with patients, Dr. Mathur first tries to understand their personal goals for treatment. He then educates them about their condition and possible treatment strategies so they can partner to make informed decisions about their care.
Although it’s not always possible to find a definitive answer, Dr. Mathur is committed to investigating what exactly is causing an allergic reaction. His current research focuses on understanding how the eosinophil (a type of white blood cell) contributes to allergic diseases, particularly eosinophilic esophagitis and severe asthma.
Outside of work, Dr. Mathur enjoys playing tennis, pickleball and other racquet sports. He also enjoys biking on the Dane County trails and exploring the state.

Research & publications
Dr. Mathur is studying in vitro co-cultures of human peripheral blood eosinophils and epithelial cells to determine whether eosinophils can regulate epithelial responses to innate immune stimuli and viruses. Dr. Mathur is also recruiting older and younger asthma subjects to determine whether immunosenescence influences airway inflammation, the clinical presentation of asthma, and the therapeutic implications for the elderly asthma patient.
