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.
Established in 2000, IVI’s International Vaccinology Course is one of the longest-running vaccinology courses in the Asia-Pacific region. In order to celebrate IVI’s EU office opening in Stockholm, this year’s vaccinology course will be organized in a hybrid format having the participants hosted in Karolinska Institute (15-20 participants in Stockholm) and IVI HQ (115 participants in Seoul), the presentations will be lively broadcasted from both venues (i.e., Stockholm and Seoul).
This year’s five-day course highlights Breakthroughs in Vaccine Science and Technology, paying tribute to the remarkable strides in vaccine innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic and how they’ve changed the landscape and future of vaccine development.
The course is a combination of lectures, and interactive case studies, presented and facilitated by experts from academia, industry, government, and non-governmental organizations. From “refresher” lectures to applied topics in vaccine discovery, development, and delivery, the course provides a comprehensive overview of vaccinology with a focus on practicality
