Stem cell innovators

Professor in Cellular Neuroscience at Lund University, Sweden

Professor Malin Parmar’s research focuses on developmental and regenerative neurobiology. The main aim of her research is to bring new cell-based therapies for Parkinson’s disease to the clinic. Malin has a Ph.D. degree in developmental biology in 2003 from Lund University which was followed by a PostDoc Position at the Institute of Stem Cell Research at Edinburgh University, financed by Swedish Research Council. After her postdoc, she moved back to Lund to set up her own lab at the Department of Experimental Medical Science. Prof. Parmar is a leading authority within Parkinson’s research and Regenerative medicine and she has leading roles in several European and global network and consortiums which are working toward doing the first-in-human clinical trials with stem cell-derived neurons for Parkinson’s disease. She is also the founder and owner of Parmar Cells AB, a research and development company with consultancy services in biomedicine and biotechnology.
