Hal Hoffman is a physician scientist. He is Chief of the Division of Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology in the Dept. of Pediatrics at UCSD/Rady Children’s Hospital and professor of Pediatrics and Medicine at UCSD. Dr. Hoffman has authored over 70 publications and serves as keynote lecturer around the world speaking about his approach to better understanding the genetic basis to disease in his patients. His lab was first to identify the genes that cause four different human autoimmune diseases for patients that were previously undiagnosed. These discoveries were instrumental for finding the only treatment now available for his patients with these rare immune disorders. He continues this important work that reveals the genetic basis underlying rare disease which leads to new medicines for rare disease patients with unmet needs

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.
