Article of the Year Award

Every year, Lund Stem Cell Center holds its prestigious 'Article of the Year Award'. Publications from the center are nominated by the Principal Investigators and are subject to external evaluation. The results are announced at the annual retreat and the prize is 50 000 SEK awarded to the research group of the winner.

This year, the Lund Stem Cell Center Article of the Year Award (2021) ceremony will take place on Tuesday 24th May at the SCC Retreat.
