Petter Brodin is Prof. of Pediatric immunology at Imperial College London and Karolinska Institutet. The lab (https://brodinlab.com/) develops novel 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 MD/PhD studies at KI, Brodin joined Mark Davis’s lab at Stanford University investigating contributions of heritable and non-heritable factors in immune systems of twins (Brodin et al, Cell, 2015). Following this, Brodin returned to Sweden to establish his own research program using systems-immunology to study immune system development early in life. The lab recruited birth cohorts and showed differences between preterm and term infants (Olin et al, Cell, 2018), global repertoires of maternal IgG abs (Pou et al, Nat. Med, 2019) and the imprinting effect of colonizing microbes such as bifidobacteria early in life (Henrick et al, Cell, 2021).
