Research Center


The Wallenberg Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WIRM) is a Research Institute financed by a grant from Knut och Alice Wallenbergs Stiftelse. The aim of WIRM is to advance research on the blood system at Karolinska Institutet, both during normal hematopoietic development and in disease.

This is accomplished by recruitment of leading international expertise, both at the senior level and at the level of new junior group leaders. WIRM also builds new important research infrastructure for stem cell research and regenerative medicine, ranging from a state-of-the-art FACS facility to supporting research infrastructures for cellular reprogramming/iPS, GMP production of clinical grade cells, transgenic mouse technology, zebrafish and live cell imaging.
