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.
Welcome to the 9th National Infection Biology / Swedish Microbiology Meeting
The 9th National Infection Biology/Swedish Microbiology Meeting will be a virtual meeting that aims to provide a broad vision on current state-of-the-art microbiology techniques and research in Sweden.
Keynote speakers are Swedish researchers working within the sub-disciplines of bacteriology, virology, parasitology, host response, clinical infection biology, environmental microbiology, zoonotics, and new methods.
Poster presentations will be organized as digital poster walks that allow participants to present and discuss their work with other participants. NDPIA encourages all members to use this opportunity to present your research.
The meeting is co-organized by the National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA) and the Swedish Society for Microbiology (SFM) with the aims to enhance cross-disciplinary research in Sweden within the fields of infection biology and microbiology as well as to strengthen the Swedish network of scientists within these fields.
Pathogenic Immune Evasion Strategies
One Health Approach To Zoonotic Infectious Diseases
All NDPIA members are invited by our Norwegian partner program, National Graduate School in Infection Biology and Antimicrobials (IBA) to participate in their Vaccinology course.
Registration deadline: August 17th
The course is intended for PhD-students and post-docs working in immunology or vaccine related projects. It will provide an introduction to the history of vaccines, vaccine development, immunological mechanisms of protection, clinical trials, adjuvants and mode of action of different types of vaccines. It will be held as a combination of lectures and student assignments.
