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.
On September 8-9, 2016 the Stem Cell Center Annual Retreat took place at Örenäs Castle and it was a big success. With over 120 participants, it was a fruitful two days consisting of presentations, poster sessions, team building activities and workshops. The aim of the retreat was to encourage exchange of not only knowledge but also to learn more about one another’s work and progress within different research groups. Furthermore, the retreat was an excellent opportunity to extend networks, as well as have interaction on a personal level.
Are you interested in stem cell biology? Then take your chance to apply to the Preparatory Program in Stem Cell Biology to learn the central concepts of stem cell biology through specialised educational sessions and a hands-on, individual scientific research project.
