At Lund University the Pereira Lab is located at the Biomedical Center located next to the beautiful botanical gardens, just a few minutes away of the picturesque center of Lund. Our floor, BMC A12, is also home to many of the research groups of the Lund Stem Cell Center including the Karlsson Lab and the Larsson Lab. The eight groups at the floor share a dynamic open laboratory space with a large lunch room, kitchen and conference room. At the Pereira Lab we have our own high content microscope, cell culture facility and access to the advanced core facilities at the Lund Stem Cell Center: cell sorting, single cell analysis and bioinformatics. Trainees on the floor often share lunches at the floor or cafeteria. Collaborations between groups develop organically and are most of the time trainee driven. Our Lab is just a few meters away from Skåne University Hospital, which supports our clinical translational efforts. In Sweden we are affiliated with the Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine, Lund Stem Cell Center and the Lund University Cancer Center.


At Coimbra University the Pereira Lab is located at UC-Biotech, a state-of-the-art building part of the Biocant biotechnology park. Coimbra University is one of the oldest universities in Europe, founded in 1290. Biocant is devoted to developing and creating value in biotechnology and hosts 40% of biotech companies in Portugal. The park is located in Cantanhede which is 30 minutes away from Coimbra. At UC-Biotech, the Pereira Lab has access to a fully equipped laboratory and excellent infrastructures such as a cell culture facility, a microscopy unit, flow cytometry unit and animal house. Trainees usually use car pools to Coimbra where most of the people live and enjoy close proximity to the beaches and Atlantic Ocean. Food and wine of this region in Portugal are also highly appreciated. The Pereira Lab at UC-Biotech joins the best of academia and basic research with technology transfer and innovation efforts. In Portugal we are affiliated with the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology and the Center for Innovative Biomedicine and Biotechnology.
