About the Speaker
Dr. Petter Brodin studied medicine at Karolinska Institutet and graduated in 2011, when he also defended his PhD thesis in immunology at the same institution. He subsequently joined the Mark Davis laboratory at Stanford University, California. There, Dr. Brodin studied human immune system variation and the influences of heritable and non-heritable factors (Brodin et al, Cell 2015). In 2013, he was recruited back to Sweden and the newly established Science for Life Laboratory in Solna to build up a national facility for mass cytometry and to form his own research group. Dr. Brodin and his team members have since continued to develop methods to profile human immune systems at the system level in health and disease. He also specializes in pediatrics and has more recently focused on early human immune systems development, and the influences of environmental factors.
