Lund Stem Cell Center

Lund center for Stem Cell Biology and Cell Therapy is one of six Swedish strategic centers of excellence in life sciences, supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research. Established in January 2003, the center focuses on stem cell and developmental biology of the central nervous and blood systems, and development of stem cell and cell replacement therapies in these organ systems as well as research in non-mammalian model systems.


The Division of Molecular Hematology welcome members of the Stem Cell Center to a mini symposium on Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Bone Marrow Failure on January 17, 2017 at 15:00 - 16:30 in the Segerfalk Lecture Hall.

Please give a warm welcome to Dr. Els Mansell who has joined the Division of Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy under the supervision of Tariq Enver. Els recently completed her PhD (thesis entitled “Signalling from the placenta to the foetus: a cause of childhood leukaemia initiation?”) at the University of Bristol, UK. Els is working within the Wallenberg team whose projects aim to understand the rules for how the stem cell compartment is organized to sustain regeneration throughout life.

Please give a warm welcome to three new master students who have joined our labs at the Stem Cell Center: Klaus Sejdini, Niklas Krauße and Raissa Timmerman.

Klaus has joined the Glioma Cell Therapy group and will be supervised by Tania Ramos Moreno. He will work on his masters project for one year which will focus on Bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells.

Klaus Sejdini

Niklas is currently attending the Molecular Biosciences Master Program with a focus on Developmental and Stem Cell Biology at the Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany. He will be undertaking a master project for six months in the Yuan lab.

Niklas Krauße

Raissa is a second year Master's student in the Molecular Neuroscience track from the University of Amsterdam. For approximately 8 months, she will be working with Isaac Canals in the Ahlenius group, focusing on Transcription factor programming of pluripotent stem cells to astrocytes for modelling of leukodystrophies.
