Darcy Wagner - Congratulations to Your promotion to Associate Professor!
Darcy Wagner, a Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellow was recruited to WCMM LU in June 2017. Read more about Wagner´s research at https://portal.research.lu.se/portal/en/persons/darcy-wagner(f5bc7915-12...
Wagner’s research focuses on understanding the role of the extracellular environment for endogenous and exogenous lung tissue regeneration in healthy and diseased lung. In particular, the work focuses on the design and use of biologic and synthetic scaffolds to bioengineer new lung tissue for transplantation.
Congratulations Vinay Swaminathan and Gesine Paul-Visse to the 3-year grants From Cancerfonden!
Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellow Vinay Swaminathan´s project “Molecular and physical mechanisms of cancer cell migration via Integrin-based focal adhesions” was granted 3 x 800.000 SEK 2020-2022.
and Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Clinical Researcher Gesine Paul-Visse´s project ” Targeting pericyte-mediated immunosuppression in Glioblastoma multiforme” was granted 3 x 800.000 SEK 2020-2022
Filipe Pereira - Congratulations to Your promotion to Associate Professor!
Filipe Pereira, a Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellow was recruited to WCMM LU in September 2017. Pereira has during the last two years continued to make excellent scientific achievements, with many high impact scientific publications and he has also together with his collegues established a small biotech company called Asgard Therapeutics. Pereira´s research field is within hematopoietic stem cell biology and more specifically cellular reprogramming and hematopoietic specification. The emergent ability to reprogram any human cell into desired hematopoietic cell-types is opening avenues to the discovery of new therapies for immune and blood diseases.

Congratulations to Promotions to Senior Lecturers - Darcy Wagner and Filipe Pereira
WCMM LU Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellows Darcy Wagner and Filipe Pereira have been promoted to Senior Lecturers. We warmly congratulate them to this great career achievement and excitingly look forward to take part of their future contributions to science and to the Medical faculty, and the WCMM LU.
Building a Centre in Regenerative and Translational Medicine!
At the second yearly WCMM LU Retreat, held in Falsterbo, the WCMM Lu Leadership and PIs together planned the establishment, and how to manage and thrive our Centre in Regenerative and Translational Medicine towards world-class.
Welcome Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellow Agnete Kirkeby!
We warmly welcome our new Fellow Agnete Kirkeby, that will move from Copenhagen University, Denmark.
Visit by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation!
In October we were delighted to host representatives from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation (KAW) at a meeting at our Centre. We presented the progress of the Centre and the great scientific achievements and had exciting discussions! We were especially proud of the very professional and interactive session held by our researchers, from PhD students to PIs, highlighting the benefits of belonging to a Centre in Regenerative and Translational Medicine, that puts extensive efforts in educating the new generation of scientists but also the future academic leaders.
Anja Meissner - Congratulations to Your promotion to Associate Professor!
Anja Meissner was the first Wallenberg Molecular Medicine Fellow Recruited to WCMM LU, and she started in May 2017. Meissner has during the last two years continued to make great scientific achievements, with excellent scientific publications and her work is an outstanding example of our Centre´s core focus on Regenerative- and translational medicine, but also with high emphasis on interdisciplinary research. Meissner’s research field is vascular biology, and her research aims to isolate novel therapeutic targets that effectively prevent and most importantly, also reverse complications mediated by cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension.
