Lund Stem Cell Center

Funded by StemTherapy, one of six strategic research areas of excellence in life sciences at Lund University, (supported by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and the Swedish Government), the Stem Cell Center (SCC) was established in January 2003. Lund SCC 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.

Europe-wide stem cell engagement

Each year UniStem organizes an outreach event on stem cell research dedicated to high school students. This event, UniStem Day, is currently the largest educational outreach initiative on stem cells and regenerative medicine in Europe. The aim of UniStem Day is to stimulate young students' curiosity, raise questions and provide information about the current state and the potential of stem cell research. 

UniStem Day 2019 at Lund Stem Cell Center

Building upon the success of the last years, scientists from Lund Stem Cell Center will host their fifth outreach event on stem cells open to high school students. The event will take place on Friday March 15, 2019. The morning will be devoted to lectures and a web-based interactive event with other UniStem sites across Europe. In the afternoon we will offer lab visits, multiple hands-on sessions as well as workshops.
