UCMR Mini-Symposium – Invitation to UCMR Postdoc seminars

Place: Lecture room Stora hörsalen, KB3B1, KBC

Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) is an interdisciplinary research centre established by a consortium of scientists representing medical & molecular microbiology, molecular & structural biology, chemistry & physics, and is devoted to top quality research and novel applications in the fields of microbial pathogenesis. The idea with this Mini-Symposium is to highlight the research conducted by post-docs within UCMR research groups and promote collaboration within UCMR but hopefully also lead to new collaborations both within UCMR as well with other research groups.

The Umeå Centre for Microbial Research invites to the UCMR Day 2013!
Thursday, 10 January 2013, Stora hörsalen, KBC

All scientists and staff members within UCMR (Umeå Centre for Microbial Research) research groups, collaboration partners and researchers with an interest in microbial research and/or infection biology are invited to a day of inspiring research presentations and an excellent opportunity for networking and initiation of multidisciplinary collaborations. Register below and get an update on research within UCMR and core facilities/National infrastructures co-funded by UCMR programs!

This year the new National facility for High Resolution Scanning Electron Microscopy will be presented. The program includes presentations from UCMR research groups from all participating departments as well as a poster session. Prices will be awarded to the best posters.

New to this year is the UCMR Speakers Trophy (UST) open to all UCMR researchers where the winner will be decided by an expert jury together with the audience.
