EMBO Workshop “Bacterial cell division: Closing the gap”

This  EMBO workshop with focus on the bacterial cell division takes place is now open to registration and abstract submission. The aim of this workshop  is to bring together both established experts and early career researchers to discuss recent major advances in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of cell division, as well as novel aspects of division and its regulation in non-model bacteria, antibiotic target selection and drug development.

The workshop will be organised in Lund, 9-12 June 2019.

Live in the dark – recap of the NDPIA course “Live Imaging of Intracellular Infections”

November. The absolutely worst month of the year. Dark and gloomy. To change that, we spent five full days together with other people also passionate about intracellular infections. The course, named Live Imaging of Intracellular Infections was held 12-16 November at Linköping University and attracted students from Kalmar, Linköping, Umeå, Uppsala, Örebro and Tromsø who were encouraged to bring their own cells and bacteria to work with during the course.

Live imaging hands-on
The central element was the new, live cell microscope in Linköping in which e.g. infected cells can be imaged over time in a high throughput fashion.

Appreciated NDPIA workshop and 4th NDPIA/SFM Day 1-2 October 2018

On 1-2 October, NDPIA organised a workshop on English writing and a joint meeting, the 4th NDPIA/SFM Day, together with “Svenska föreningen för mikrobiologi” (SFM) at Hjortviken Konferens, beautifully located at the west coast outside of Gothenburg. Young investigators provided very positive feedback to NDPIA/SFM management with comments like ”excellent workshop, a great poster walk, good networking opportunities” and suggest that similar events should be organised in the future.
