Welcome to the first network meeting: Antibiotic Resistance – a One Health Perspective, Uppsala, 20-21 April, 2015!

The first network meeting of the National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics will be held in Uppsala 20-21 April, 2015, and focus on antibiotic resistance, including human, animal and environmental perspectives. The meeting will at the same time provide the first larger networking opportunity for programme participants. The meeting is a joint collaboration with One Health Sweden, a collaboration for researchers with interest in zoonotic infections.

Invited speakers include leading national experts and researchers in antibiotics and resistance mechanisms. Programme participants will give very short presentations of their research projects (irrespective of research focus), complemented by poster presentations – with an award for the best poster. Additional networking opportunities with participants and invited speakers will be provided.

The meeting and accommodation 20-21 April are free of charge for programme participants and all participants outside of Uppsala will receive co-funding of travel costs (if the need for this is indicated in the form below).

All programme participants are highly encouraged to attend this and future network meetings in order to establish the intended programme network.

Meeting venue: Gamla universitetet, hall IV (Universitetshuset)

Molecular Virology Workshop and Symposium on Virology in Smögen, August 17-22, 2015

A workshop entitled “Molecular Virology” will be organized in Smögen, August 2015, preliminary dates 17-19. PhD students are the primary target group, but also postdocs are welcome to participate if there are vacancies.

More information about the workshop will be posted as soon as possible at

The workshop is sponsored by the MIMS affiliated Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics and therefore programme participants will be prioritized if the workshop is oversubscribed.

In connection to the workshop, the “Smögen Symposium on Virology” will be held, 20-22 August, 2015. Information about the symposium will be posted at (although this page currently contains information on the previous Virology Symposium).

Participants of the MIMS affiliated Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics will be able to apply for co-funding of travel/accommodation for participating in the symposium by filling out an on-line form to be included at closer to the meeting date.

The activity will be held January 13-16, 2015, at the Department of Molecular Biology, Umeå University. If you are interested in the workshop, please register as soon as possible via where additional information can be found.

Novel fluorescence-based methods in immunology – symposium and course at KI February 9-13, 2015

The symposium and course include the technique super-resolution fluorescent microscopy, actualized by the Nobel Prize in Chemistry, and fluctuation-based fluorescence techniques. Results from nano- to single cell and tissue scale will be presented. The course (including the symposium) renders 2 ECTS and the symposium 0.6 ECTS.

Please note that the symposium and the course are open not only for PhD students but also for postdocs. Furthermore, PhD students in KI collaboration programmes such as the MIMS affiliated Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics are considered equal to KI PhD students when selecting participants if the activities are oversubscribed.
