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. Read more about Hemato-Linné at the Swedish Research Council
  • 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.

Our mission

  • 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.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Tobias Prize 2016, amounting to SEK 10.1 million, to David Bryder of Lund University “for his groundbreaking research into blood cell creation, factors that regulate the maturation of hematopoietic stem cells, and hematopoietic stem cell ageing, all of which of great importance to the successful transplantation of stem cells”.

The Tobias Prize is one of Sweden's largest individual research prizes; it is awarded in memory of Tobias who passed away due to a severe blood disease at the young age of 17.

Congratulations David Bryder on your fantastic achievement!
