Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM), is an interdisciplinary translational research environment and educational platform dedicated to hematology, immunology and regenerative medicine.
Our vision is to bring together basic and clinical competences to pursue cutting-edge research improving the understanding of cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in normal and dysregulated hematopoiesis and tissue regeneration. The ultimate goal is to translate novel scientific findings into the clinic, thereby improving patient outcome.
The establishment of HERM was supported by a generous grant from the Wallenberg Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WIRM) and by support from the Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, and the Karolinska University Hospital.
HERM was created during 2011 with a mission to join research groups within hematology and hemopoietic cell therapy at Karolinska Institutet in a new translational research environment.
