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.
