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.

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.

Raissa Timmerman

Welcome to the Stem Cell Center !

Congratulations to Agnete Kirkeby, Malin Parmar and co-authors on their back-to-back articles published in Cell Stem Cell. The breakthrough results highlight that we are edging closer towards the first ever transplantations of embryonic stem cell derived dopamine neurons in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Carolin Börner

Please welcome Carolin Börner to the Artner group.

Carolin studies Biotechnology at Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg in Germany and will be working on her internship at the Stem Cell Center until February 2017.

Welcome to the Stem Cell Center Carolin!
