NDPIA course “Mosquito-borne viruses and their vectors” 180611-14 in Umeå

The aim of this 2 ECTS NDPIA course in Umeå is to provide in depth understanding of virus-vector interaction and transmission dynamics of mosquito-borne viruses.
It will provide better understanding of mosquitoes as vectors of arboviruses most of which are zoonotic in nature and affect both humans and animals. The course will include various aspects of the mosquito vector including; ecology, biology, population genetics, competence, capacity and how these factors influence virus transmission to the susceptible host. The course will also cover surveillance, identification, diagnostics, prevention and control, as well as arboviruses.

Registration deadline: 180430

Local NDPIA network meeting/workshop “Preparing for the next step” in Uppsala 180215

The meeting is intended to increase local networking among NDPIA members in Uppsala (UU/SLU/SLV/SVA) and to attract new NDPIA members, i.e. PhD students and postdocs focusing on infection and/or antibiotics. If the outcome is positive, similar NDPIA-activities will be organized at other universities.

In addition to information about NDPIA there will be a workshop that will help to identify your attributes and how to use these to fit a job description, key elements to be addressed in a job application, including CV and cover letter and how to prepare yourself and your presentation for the interview. The workshop will include group discussions and writing exercises.

Successful NDPIA workshops and NIB 2017 16-18 October

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.
