HERM Seminar series

The Center for Hematology and Regenerative Medicine (HERM) at the Department of Medicine, Huddinge (MedH) organizes a seminar series with invited outstanding researchers/scientists in the fields of hematology, immunology and regenerative medicine. The seminar series provides great opportunities for researchers at different levels to interact with world-leading experts in the related fields.

Mondays at 12:00-13:00*

*(exceptions apply)

The seminars are hybrid - hosted online and on site, unless otherwise stated.
