On 17-18 October, the National Infection Biology (NIB) Network held its seventh meeting, NIB 2017, at the Djurönäset Conference Hotel outside of Stockholm. The meeting was preceded by NDPIA workshops on science communication and career planning, held 16-17 October.
In line with the NIB network’s ambitions, the meeting provided opportunities for young researchers to present their research and to network with scientists from all the various fields of infection biology research. The NIB 2017 programme featured international keynote talks, selected talks from submitted abstracts and two poster sessions. Among a total of 47 posters submitted by NDPIA members, 10 were selected for short presentations during meeting.
This 1 ECTS course at Karolinska Institutet 8-9 February 2018 aims to address selected important aspects of biofilm formation and its regulation. Topics covered will include prevention of microbial biofilm formation, biofilm-host interaction and the impact of biofilm formation in the clinical setting. In the practicals, different microbial biofilm models and principle biofilm-related experiments will be demonstrated and performed by the participants on an individual basis in order to encourage critical assessment of experimental data. The course will also discuss how biofilm derived principles benefit other research areas.
Registration deadline – 22 December 2017
