This 1.5 ECTS NDPIA course given in Lund/Malmö 161207-09 aims to provide an overview of the complex network of interactions between the human host and different microbes. The lectures will cover “immune evasion” from both the host’s and the pathogen’s point of view. Invited speakers will present ongoing research in the field of microbial immune-modulating mechanisms and give attendants deeper insight in methods and techniques that are useful for research within the field.

NDPIA emphasizes the importance to meet and discuss with other researchers within the field. Therefore, several networking activities are included in the course program and a free, informal dinner with invited speakers and course attendants will conclude the first day.

Attendance at seminars and discussion based examinations (link to summary of course syllabus) and evaluation are mandatory to achieve ECTS. The examination also includes a brief oral presentation of participant’s research project. Furthermore, attendants will be asked to prepare for the course by reading two to three review papers which will be provided one week before the course starts and to send a summary of their research project to the course leader.

The target groups are PhD students and postdocs within the NDPIA network but if there are vacancies after the registration dead-line also master students and researchers are welcome.
