About Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine

As part of Karolinska Institutet, Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine is to significantly contribute to the improvement of human health by conducting cutting edge research in reparative medicine and related subjects, by creating a new platform for synergies between academia and innovation in Sweden and Hong Kong as well as China, and fostering future leaders in both academia and industry.

Ming Wai Lau Centre for Reparative Medicine (MWLC) is the result of a donation by Hong Kong-based businessman Ming Wai Lau to Karolinska Institutet in early 2015. MWLC consists of two units, one in Stockholm and one in Hong Kong. The focus of the Hong Kong unit, which is established at the Hong Kong Science Park, is to establish a technology hub exploring novel technologies, including genome editing, reprogramming, single cell transcriptomics, biomedical engineering, and 3D tissue imaging technologies.

View of the laboratory

Three group leaders have been recruited to the Hong Kong unit. These are Assistant Professors Sijie Chen, Linxian Li and Zongli Zheng.

Lau Faculty gathered together for the first time

Lau Fellows gathered together for the first time

The Stockholm unit encompasses a career support program for the most promising junior group leaders at KI in the broad subject of reparative medicine and who are pursuing outstanding research in subjects related to the field. The first six Lau Fellows were appointed in September 2016.

 

Finally, MWLC will establish a vibrant course program with research courses, workshops, and seminars at both the Stockholm and Hong Kong nodes, to further enhance interactions between the Karolinska Institutet and Hong Kong, and to create a vivid platform for synergistic collaborations.
