Susanne Gabrielsson

Karolinska Institute, Sweden

Dr. Gabrielsson, Karolinska Institutet, has after her PhD in immunology and allergy at Stockholm University and a postdoc on cancer at the Curie Institute in Paris, focused her work on the immunological effects of exosomes. She was the first to describe the presence of exosomes in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, and also in breast milk. She works both with clinical studies and in murine disease models. Her work has revealed that exosomes are major players in lung diseases such as asthma and sarcoidosis. In animal models she is studying the immune response to dendritic cell derived exosomes, in order to develop exosome based immunotherapies for cancer. Dr Gabrielsson has received a Marie Curie postdoctoral award, the European Academy of Allergology and Clinical Immunology Major Award, The Swedish Medical Society Prize and the Swedish Society For Allergology’s Major Award.
