The Wallenberg Neuroscience Center (WNC) was established in 1996 as a joint venture between Lund University and Skåne University Hospital. The WNC building was partly funded by a major grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation as the first of four new units belonging to the Lund University Biomedical Center (BMC).
Today, the WNC represents a closely interacting research community shared by researchers from a number different research groups, housed not only at the WNC but also elsewhere at the BMC. We are unified in our efforts to develop disease-related basic and translational research aimed to explore novel neurorestorative and neuroregenerative approaches and cell-based therapies, with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases, stroke and epilepsy.
