In order to maintain the NDPIA network, an NDPIA Alumni group is under establishment. Therefore, all participants that are no longer PhD students or postdocs at Swedish (or NDPIA partner) universities are encouraged to edit their profile via http://ndpia.se/edit-profile/. The intention is to arrange NDPIA Alumni reunions with invited speakers, Alumni speakers and networking opportunities. These events will also be open for current NDPIA members to facilitate further networking and lessons learned.
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.
