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.


Congratulations to Mattias Magnusson, Kenichi Miharada, and Sofie Singbrant Söderberg, who altogether were awarded grants worth 4.2 million SEK.
