Developmental Biology, Stem Cells, Reproductive, Regenerative and Reparative Medicine

Developmental biology includes the study of how genes regulate cell growth, the differentiation of cells from the stem cell stage and onwards, and the processes that result in the formation of tissues and organs. The aim is to find new methods of treating disease and repairing damaged tissues. Reproduction involves research into germ cells, infertility, pregnancy, foetal medicine, the newborn infant and andrology. Reparative medical research involves surgery and orthopaedics.

Anna Falk grows brain cells in culture bowls

Small brains float in the culture bowl in her hand. The reprogramming technique allows Anna Falk and her researchers at KI to transform skin cells into brain cells. Something that in the future may lead to new medications for autism and schizophrenia, or even brain cell transplants. Video produced by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.
