About Madeleine Rådinger

Title: PhD, Associate professor Position: Senior Lecturer, Chairman of Krefting Research Centre

Madeleine Rådinger graduatedfrom the University of Gothenburg with an MSc degree in Molecular biology, and in2006 she received a PhD in Respiratory Medicine and Allergologyat the University of Gothenburg. After her PhD, she took on a 2.5 years postdoctoral position at the Laboratory of Allergic Diseases, National Institute of Allergic and Infection Diseases, the National Institute of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, USA. She returned to the University of Gothenburg in 2010 and in 2013, she became Associate professorin Immunology.


Rådinger research focuses on increasing the understanding of the immune systemin subgroups of asthma, including the contribution of immune regulatory microRNAs. The ultimate goal is to identify molecular drivers linked to clinical features in asthma subgroups, for stratification for targeted therapy, diagnosis and potentially identification of new therapeutic targets.

Her research is funded by the VBG group Herman Krefting Foundation for Asthma and Allergy Research, the Swedish Research Council, the Swedish Heart and Lung foundation, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and ALF.

Rådinger collaborates with several national and internationalm research groups studyingmimmunology, respiratory research and microRNA biology. In 2019, she was awarded the big grant from the Swedish association for allergy research (SFFA) and the Swedish Cancer-and Allergy Foundation environmental medical award for her research.

J Allergy Clin Immuol.2014 May;133(5):1429-38. This is the first study to describe a role for microRNA-155 in the regulation of type 2 mediated allergic eosinophilic inflammation in a mouse model of asthma.

This is the first study to describethat human circulating ILCs express microRNA-155 and that this expression is higher in females.
