Molecular Medicine and Gene Therapy

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.

On September 12, 2014 Emma Rörby successfully defended her thesis entitled "Regulation of Hematopoietic Stem Cells". The Faculty opponent was Professor Margaret (Peggy) Goodell from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.

Professor Margaret (Peggy) Goodell from Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA will be visiting Lund on September 10-14. She will give a lecture entitled:  DNA methyltransferase 3a in normal and malignant hematopoiesis” on September 11 at 14:00 in Segerfalk lecture hall, BMC A10.
This seminar is sponsored by Hemato-Linné and STEMTHERAPY.
