There will be a symposium entitled “Infection Research to Meet Current and Future Challenges” in Umeå 19 June 2017 featuring several internationally renowned researchers. The symposium is one of several celebrating the 100th anniversary of Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (KAW) and it will be organized by Kungliga Vetenskapsakademien (KVA).
NDPIA members who present posters at the symposium are offered free accommodation in Umeå 170618-20 (if not employed in Umeå) and are also invited to participate in NDPIA networking activities 19-20 June.
A new announcement will be made when registration to NDPIA networking activities 19-20 June has opened.
This 1 ECTS course aims to give participants hands-on experience with a number of new nanotechnology techniques with applications to infection biology: nanoparticles, novel imaging technologies, rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing and organic electronic sensing. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about these techniques in small groups and apply them and procces the data. The course is provided via the Swedish Medical Nanoscience Center at Karolinska Institutet.
Registration deadline: 24 April 2017
Maximum number of participants: 15
A 2 ECTS NDPIA course on “Infection and Cancer” will be held at the Dept. of Cell and Molecular Biology at Karolinska Institutet 11-12 May, 2017. Examples of content:
- Basic concepts of viral transformation
- Analysis of the mechanism by which bacterial infections contribute to cancer initiation and progression
- How chronic or latent infections can promote the acquisition of several hallmarks of cancer
- Which conditions favor the microbial transforming capacity
- How these processes can be prevented by prophylactic vaccination
- Open issues that still need to be solved
The presence of national and international prominent researchers provide a golden opportunity for the participants to strengthen their scientific network.
Registration deadline – 17 March, 2017
