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 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. The Wallenberg Academy Fellows program aims to provide long term financing for promsing young Swedish and international researchers in all disciplines.
Dr Miharada was awarded the competetive Project grant for junior scientists from the Swedish Research Council to study how ER stress influence the growth of hematopoietic stem cells. The purpose of this grant is fund the most outstanding young researchers, the funding period is five years starting in 2014 and sums up to approximately 7 million SEK.
Sweden’s largest individual scientific prize: the TOBIAS PRIZE 2014 awards research about blood formation and leukaemic stem cells. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, awarding body of the prize instituted by the Tobias Foundation, has decided to award the prize for 2014 to Sten Eirik Waelgaard Jacobsen, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden and University of Oxford, UK “for groundbreaking scientific contributions to the field of haematopoiesis, particularly with respect to identifying factors that regulate the maturation process of haematopoietic stem cells, factors of great importance for successfully transplanting stem cells”.
