The Division of Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy is located at the Biomedical Center (BMC), Lund University, Sweden. Established as a joint venture between the Medical Faculty at Lund University and the Hematology Clinic at Lund University Hospital, our mission is to translate basic science to clinical applications.
Our research focuses on hematopoiesis, the continuous and dynamic process of blood cell formation. The laboratory consists of eleven closely collaborating research groups that all share a common interest in investigating the properties of blood stem cells to eventually understand and treat hematological disorders.
Six of our researchers belong to the Hemato-Linné Excellence Linnaeus Research Environment funded by The Swedish Research Council and Lund University. Several of the groups are engaged in STEMTHERAPY, a Strategic Research Area for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine that is also supported by The Swedish Research Council.
Christian S. Thudium will defend his thesis entitled "Development of Novel Models for Studying Osteoclasts" on October 10 at 13:00 in the Segerfalk Lecture Hall.
