Highest ranking for the 7T facility in VR's inventory of needs

The research council has announced its ranking of the 69 proposals in last year's needs inventory. We are proud that the national 7T facility was placed in the highest category, A1, "is considered as having potential to become an infrastructure of national interest and is ready for a call". Details on an call for national infrastructures in 2021 will be published in the fall of 2020. The resultats can be found on VR's webpages. (Opens in new Window)

Smartare bruk av bilddata ska bereda väg för säkrare läkemedel

Forskare vid Lunds universitet ska tillsammans med Medicon Village-baserade Truly Labs inom några år utveckla nya produkter som främjar framtagandet av säkra läkemedel. Innovativ användning av bilddata ska bidra till att minska riskerna för biverkningar på lungorna – ett stort problem i läkemedelsutveckling.

I samarbetet ingår:

  • Forskare vid institutionen för translationell medicin, Lunds universitet, Malmö
  • Lund University Bioimaging Center (LBIC), Lund universitet, Lund
  • Life science-företaget Truly Labs AB som utför kontraktsforskning vid Medicon Village i Lund

New equipment in our Histology lab

We are happy to inform you that we now have new equipment in our Histology lab!

  • We can help you with Embedding in paraffin and the following sectioning on our new Leica paraffin microtome.
  • We can offer you the same help with cryo sectioning on the new Leica cryostat.
  • We also have the possibility to help you with labeling and staining for light microscopy.

If you prefer, you are welcome to use the equipment yourself.

For information and pricelist, please contact Susanne [dot] Stromblad [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se
