Stem cell innovators

Assistant Professor at the Department of Clinical Science, Intervention and Technology (CLINTEC), Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden

Assistant Professor Fredrik Lanner undertook his Ph.D. thesis at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) Karolinska Institutet, Sweden. After his postdoctoral research in Janet Rossant’s lab at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, he returned to Karolinska Institutet and established his independent research lab exploring how pluripotent stem cells are regulated in the human embryo and how embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can be used for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration.
