2022 March - Sigrid Juselius Stiftelse supports our research!‚Äč

Thanks to Sigrid Juselius Stiftelse for the amazing support to analyze how extrinsic factors affect the size of blood stem cells!

Jette and Evgeny Zatulovskiy are editors of new research topic to be published in Frontiers in Cell and Developmental Biology

In this research topic, we strive to present a collection of papers showing specific examples of how cell size affects different aspects of cellular physiology during health and disease, and how cells regulate their size. Great opportunity: Submit you abstract/manuscript!

 

Submission Deadlines:

18 February 2022      Abstract
20 June 2022            Manuscript

2022 January - Instrumentarium Science Foundation supports our research!

Thanks to Instrumentarium Science Foundation for an amazing fellowship! We will continue our studies on how size affects blood stem cells!

2021 November - √Öke Wibergs Stiftelse supports our research!

The foundation distributes grants in the field of medical research. The Lengefeld lab will be supported to investigate how the microenvironment influences leukemia!

2021 November - Cancer Foundation Finland supports our research!

The Cancer Society of Finland aims aim  to ensure a good quality of life for everyone, free from cancer and regardless of cancer. The Lengefeld lab will be supported to investigate cellular and molecular signals in leukemia initiation!

2021 October - Jeanssons Stiftelser supports our research!

The Jeansson Stiftelser supports medical research by annually providing research grants. The Lengefeld lab will be supported to investigate how the size of stem cells affects their decline during aging and cancer.
