Networking via new NDPIA LinkedIn Group!

As a result from feed-back from participants at the second NDPIA Network Meeting in Gothenburg in April this year, an open NDPIA LinkedIn group ( has been established with the aim of facilitating networking among NDPIA participants and between NDPIA members and other scientists studying infections and/or antibiotics. All NDPIA members have received an invitation to join this new LinkedIn group. Everybody who joins the group can invite relevant (non-NDPIA) persons to the group. Initially no activities will be announced via the group (this is done as before via and via the NDPIA Facebook group).
