Hematology Unit/HERM

The mission of the unit is to join excellent clinical care and research in a translational environment. Within the unit, groups involved in basic, translational and clinical research work closely together.

About our research

The research focus is to improve understanding and treatment of hematologic disorders and to explore basic cellular, molecular and immunological mechanisms with relevance for hematopoiesis, cell therapy and tumor development. The research program at the Hematology Unit, encompasses the range from clinical trials to basic tumor biology and cellular mechanisms, and is built on close collaboration between clinical and basic researchers.

One important aim is that the biology and therapeutic outcome of every patient should feed into future knowledge and better diagnostic and therapeutic tools. The unit offers courses for graduate students, and a program for postgraduate education. We welcome talented students, clinicians as well as basic scientists, to apply for positions.

Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM)

Most hematology research groups operate within the Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM), but some have their main activity outside this center.

HERM is a translational research center, encompassing research groups involved in hematology, hemopoiesis, immunology and cell therapy. 

The hematology unit/HERM is located in the research facility Neo at KI South Campus Flemingsberg. In Neo, around 400 researchers from various departments share an open environment that enables meetings, synergies, and exploration of areas of mutual interest across disciplines.
