Welcome to NDPIA!

The National Doctoral Programme in Infection and Antibiotics (NDPIA) is a research school funded by The Swedish Research Council (VR) and is affiliated with MIMS (Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden, Umeå University) and the Swedish National Network for Infection Biology.

NDPIA has the goal to connect research environments studying infection biology and antibiotics throughout Sweden by offering courses & workshops, conferences, research stays in Sweden and abroad, and network meetings that promote scientific research and recruitment of young scientists.

NDPIA supports participation in these activities by co-funding of travel and accommodation costs. PhD students and postdoctoral fellows enrolled at a Swedish university/institute or with one of our international partners and studying infection biology and antibiotics are welcome to apply for membership here.

Infection and Cancer course 2021!

NDPIA is in collaboration with Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) offering a course that combines introductory lectures and student learning activities with an international symposium on infection and cancer.

International experts will present basic concepts on principles by which viruses and bacteria subvert the cellular micro-environment to cause cancer.

Participants will have an opportunity to

  • Design experimental models to address knowledge gaps in infection and cancer
  • Discuss their research with colleagues and international researchers in the field
  • Build their national and international scientific network
  • Discuss with experts working within infection and cancer research

Registration deadline: August 4th, 2021 August 10th, 2021
