Camila Consiglio is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Brodin Lab at Karolinska Institutet (KI), Sweden, where she applies systems-level computational approaches to understand human immune function in health and disease. Originally from Brazil, Camila obtained her BS in Biomedicine and MSc in Genetics from Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. She holds a PhD degree in Immunology from Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (RPCCC), Buffalo, USA.
The overarching goal of Camila’s research is to understand how immune variation contributes to disease in humans. Growing evidence reveals that biological sex is an important driver of immune variability. Camila’s PhD research took advantage of murine models and pharmacological inhibitors to uncover how sex hormones regulate immunity in cancer (RPCCC, USA) and infection (9-month research stay at Institut Pasteur, France). Building on her Ph.D. work, she is now utilizing systems immunology approaches to dissect the contribution of sex hormones to human immune function as a MSCA fellow at KI.
