ScanBalt Stem Cell Network Funded – Creation of an international network
Exciting news for ScanBalt stem researchers with the announcement that NorFA will fund the ScanBalt stem cell research network. This funding will seek to develop the existing strengths in stem cell research of the ScanBalt bioregion by creating a common framework of collaboration.
The Nordic countries, and Germany, have some of the worlds leading stem cell laboratories. Stem cell research is also emerging in the Baltic countries. Many of these groups are currently working independently towards similar goals, for example the definition of stem cell types, their use for therapeutic purposes, or their use for advanced drug screening.
This network, by drawing together researchers from across the ScanBalt bioregion, will create a unique international strength and reinforce the global position of North European stem cell research.
