A Joint Initiative to Understand Blood Generation in Health and Disease
- Hemato-Linné is an excellence Linnaeus research environment supported by the Swedish Research Council and Lund University for the period of 2006-2016
- Established as a world-leading research environment to study the regulation of normal and leukemic hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and blood lineage development
We congratulate Hemato-Linné scientist David Bryder for receiving a prestigous ERC Consolidator Grant. The European Research Council (ERC) has published the results of the first call of Consolidator Grants. David Bryder, is one of 10 Swedish researchers who was awarded funding.
The Swedish Society for Medical Research (SSMF) has awarded Göran Karlsson with their big grant for young researchers.

The aim with Görans research is to identify kay factors to distinguish blood stem cells from leukemic stem cells.
We congratulate Dr. Joan Yuan awarded the competitive Wallenberg Academy Fellowship! Dr Yuan is studying fetal and adult lymphopoiesis with the goal to improve bone marrow transplantations and to understand the development of childhood leukemia.
