A joint initiative to understand blood generation in health and disease
- Hemato-Linné is an excellence research environment in hematopoiesis at Lund University.
- Financed by the Swedish Research Council through a 10-year Linnaeus grant, Hemato-Linné was established in 2006 as a world-leading research environment to study the regulation of normal and leukemic hematopoietic stem cells and blood lineage development.
- Hemato-Linné also focuses on excellence in research training and career development of young scientists.
Unistem Day 2015 at Lund Stem Cell Center has been a great success! Approximately 200 high school students visited Lund Stem Cell Center on March 13th 2015 to listen to lectures about stem cells and to gain insight into the daily work of scientists through multiple hands-on sessions and workshops.

Congratulations to Jonas Larsson who was recently awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant. Of the 2,525 applications received from all over Europe, 372 were awarded funding. Jonas Larsson is one out of nine Swedish researchers who received an ERC Consolidator Grant 2014. He was awarded € 2 million for his research on "Uncovering Targets for Ex Vivo Expansion of Hematopoietic Stem Cells to Enhance Cell Therapies of Blood Disorders (UNEXPECTED)".
Each year UniStem organizes a big outreach event on stem cells dedicated to high school students. In 2014 the event was organized simultaneously by 47 universities across Italy, Spain, Ireland, Sweden and UK and the plan is to get even more universities across Europe involved for 2015. This year Lund Stem Cell Center, via the Research School, will organize UniStem Day in Lund! The event will take place on Friday March 13th.
Johan Flygare and Kenichi Miharada together with Leif Bülow from the Division of Pure and Applied Biochemistry are organising a cross-disciplinary conference on transfusion medicine in June 2015 in Lund. This conference will bring together world-leading scientists in an effort to discuss the latest research highlights from different research areas in the field of transfusion medicine.
