Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) is an international team of esteemed researchers in the fields of basic and translational stem cell research. Comprised of experts from top research institutions around the world, the SAB provides invaluable strategic advice and recommendations to the Lund Stem Cell Center's Steering Group and Management Team.

As a key part of the Center's leadership structure, the SAB evaluates the research environment and ensures the best possible future direction for the Center. Their expert guidance has informed strategic decisions at all levels of the organization, helping to guide the Center's dynamic development and growth over the last 20 years.

The SAB's extensive knowledge and experience in stem cell research make them an invaluable asset to the Center, and their ongoing support helps to ensure that the Center remains at the forefront of stem cell research and therapy development.
