Dr. Lori Broderick is a board-certified allergist/immunologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an assistant professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego, with specific interests in disorders of pediatric immunity.

Dr. Broderick earned her undergraduate degree from Syracuse University in New York, graduating summa cum laude. She then received her doctorate in tumor immunology and her medical degree at the University of Buffalo in New York. She completed her pediatric residency at UC San Diego, where she developed an interest in patients with primary immunodeficiencies and autoinflammatory syndromes, also known as periodic fever disorders. She then completed a fellowship in allergy and immunology at UC San Diego, receiving extensive training to diagnose and manage primary immunodeficiency, allergic disorders and autoinflammation.

At UC San Diego, Dr. Broderick performs translational research to study the genetics and inflammatory etiology of autoinflammatory disorders, specifically periodic fever, aphthosus stomatitis, pharyngitis and adenitis (PFAPA) syndrome, as well as the identification of novel immunodeficiencies.

Dr. Broderick is the recipient of a number of distinctions and research awards from organizations including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Thrasher Research Fund, The Hartwell Foundation, the A.P. Giannini Foundation and the Arthritis National Research Foundation. She is an active member of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology; the International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases; the Clinical Immunology Society and the San Diego Allergy Society.
