Brian Kidd, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Genetics and Genomic Sciences as well as a Member of the Scientific Staff at the Harris Center for Precision Wellness at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Dr. Kidd's current research is focused on developing technologies and computational tools to identify biomarkers and molecular signatures of cancer, allergy, autoimmunity, and other immune-mediated conditions. The driving question is how can we best harness the explosion of computing power, information technologies, and publicly available biomedical data, and then integrate these pieces with clinical information to develop predictive models that can solve key issues for the health of individuals and populations. His current research programs are in:

1. Systems immunology and immune monitoring
2. Immune pharmacology
3. Skin health
4. Lyme disease
