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 consists of 15 collaborating research groups with complementary competences and a track record of successful collaborative projects.
- Hemato-Linné also focuses on excellence in research training and career development of young scientists.
- To understand the cellular and molecular regulation of hematopoietic stem cell self renewal and lineage commitment.
- To understand how these processes are perturbed in hematological disorders.
