Malin Parmar is a professor in cellular neuroscience at Lund University in Sweden and a New York Stem Cell Foundation – Robertson investigator. Her research has a strong translational focus. Together with her lab she has shown in a series of high-profile publications how human fibroblasts can be converted into neurons, how glial cells can be reprogrammed into neurons in vivo, and how therapeutic dopamine neurons can be generated from human embryonic stem cells. She is the recipient of an ERC starting grant and an ERC Consolidator grant. She leads the European effort STEM-PD, designed to bring stem cell-derived dopamine neurons to clinical trials, and she is a key partner within European and International networks as well as Industry partners to develop new, cell based therapies for Brain Repair with focus on Parkinson’s Disease.
