baryawno lab


The complexity of our research requires a coordinated, collaborative effort bringing a network of investigators and clinicians with different expertise together. Our lab collaborates with universities and hospitals outside Sweden such as Harvard University, Massachusetts General Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. We are also involved in the START (Standardization of Single-Cell and Single-Nucleus RNA-seq Protocols for Tumors) consortium that is a collaboration of investigators worldwide funded by the Human Cell Atlas.
