We are very excited for Emilie joining the lab as postdoc! She is will investigate the mechanisms connecting changes in HSC size to their dysfunction during age-related diseases. Stay tuned for her novel research approaches!
Mara joins us as part of her lab technician training. Great that you are part of the team!
Welcome to the lab! Kim Van den Handel will continue in the lab as PhD student investigating how extrinsic factors affect hematopoietic stem cell size. We are excited to have you in the team!
Thanks to Sigrid Juselius Stiftelse for the amazing support to analyze how extrinsic factors affect the size of blood stem cells!
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!

Thanks to Instrumentarium Science Foundation for an amazing fellowship! We will continue our studies on how size affects blood stem cells!
The foundation distributes grants in the field of medical research. The Lengefeld lab will be supported to investigate how the microenvironment influences leukemia!
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!
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.
