The Summer School for Infection Research of the Helmholtz Institute (HZI) for Infection Research took place in Wernigerrode, Germany 27-31 May. NDPIA PhD students Hannes Eichner and Harpa Karadottir (both from Karolinska Institutet) participated together with Fredrik Seijsing (Stockholm University) in the event in order to broaden their scientific knowledge and networks and also to strengthen the bond between the two institutions.
The 4-day summer school included lectures and workshops but also excursions into the surrounding area. Virology, bacteriology and immunology were covered extensively but also how clinics work with infectious diseases.
The summer school was an extremely nice experience for which the HZI organised a very diverse programme. Located in a beautiful small city in Germany we arrived during a hot, summery week. This was perfect for the spare time activities that were planned out for us but
