    Petter Brodin is professor of paediatric immunology at the Karolinska Institute and consultant at Astrid Lindgren’s Children’s hospital, Karolinska University hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. The Brodin lab develops and applies novel experimental and computational methods to describe human immune system variation with a particular interest in the immune systems of children, its development early in life, and its role in health and disease during childhood.

    After completing the MD/PhD program at the Karolinska Institute, Brodin joined the Mark M Davis’s laboratory at HHMI, Stanford University School of Medicine as a postdoctoral fellow, investigating the contribution of heritable and non-heritable sources of variation in immune systems of twins (Brodin et al, Cell, 2015). Following this, Brodin returned to Sweden to establish a national facility for Mass cytometry at the Swedish infrastructure hub, Science for Life Laboratory. He also established his own research program applying systems-immunology methods to the study of immune system development early in life and immune system dysregulation in health and disease.
