Nikolaos (Nikos) Papadopoulos is a world leading expert in allergy and asthma, focusing on the role of infection and its interaction with atopy, as keystone events of allergy pathophysiology as well as targets for treatment. In the course of this career, he has identified some of the key mechanisms leading from common viral exposures to asthma exacerbations and allergy persistence.

He is Professor and Head of the Allergy Department, 2nd Pediatric Clinic, University of Athens; also Honorary Professor at the University of Manchester and at OPRI, Singapore.

He has supervised more than 20 PhDs, organized over 100 educational events and has trained doctors in the clinic and researchers in the lab.
