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 Nordic study group for myeloproliferative neoplasms (NMPN) announce their Spring Meeting on the 29th and 30th of March. The Academy and Symposium are both open to researchers at the Stem Cell Center.

On behalf of our research environment StemTherapy, members of the Stem Cell Center are welcome to a StemTherapy seminar, which will take place on the March 2nd at 15:00.

We have three new employees at the Stem Cell Center. Please give a warm welcome to Pavlos Englezou (Sitnicka group), Kristýna Pimková (Hansson group) and Mohamed Eldeeb (Bryder group).

Mariagiovanna Russo

Please give a warm welcome to Mariagiovanna Russo who has joined the Ahlenius group.

Mariagiovanna has a bachelor degree in Biology and is currently a master student in medical biotechnologies at the University of Milano Bicocca in Italy. For 9 months, she will be working with Henrik Ahlenius' group doing her internship about neural stem cell quiescence during aging.

Welcome to the Stem Cell Center, Mariagiovanna!

On 19th-20th January 2017, the annual First Author Symposium took place at Lund Stem Cell Center. This two-day event consisted of a symposium featuring three invited speakers whose publications were selected by the organising committee as being the best within the field of Stem Cell biology within the past year. Furthermore, networking opportunities open to PIs and young researchers alike took place in the form of one-to-one meetings and “meet-the-expert” lunches with the invited authors.
