Alternative infection models – a lecture course and experimental workshop

Course organised by MIMS and the MIMS affiliated National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA)

22 - 25 August 2016, department of Molecular Biology, Umeå University (Map)

A series of lectures will describe and discuss the use of: C. elegans; zebrafish; chicken embryos; cell cultures, including organotypic models – organoids; mice; as well as in vivo imaging methodology, for studies of infections and host responses. The experimental workshop will include laboratory work demonstrating the use of C. elegans, zebrafish and chicken embryos for studies of bacterial infections. A maximum of 18 participants will be admitted for the complete course and experimental workshop. Additional participants may register for the lecture course only.

Registration deadline: 10 June, 2016.

Courses offered by LCBU

Two courses offered by the The Laboratories for Chemical Biology Umeå (LCBU)

Kurs 1: Introduction to High Throughput Screening- 2 ECTs, web-based

The course is entirely web-based with English course material consisting of text, figures, video lectures, review articles, research articles, and movies. The students study at their own places and examination will be carried out on request.

Kurs 2: Assay development in high throughput screening - 2 ECTS
16-20 November 2015, Umeå University (registration deadline 2015-10-25

The course gives a practical basis for assay development in high throughput screening. The course is given as complement to the theoretical on-line course “Introduction to high throughput screening” (see above). Passed examination of the theoretical course is a prerequisite for taking the practical.

Emmanuelle Charpentier about MIMS (2015):
“A sense of high-level education and high-level research, a respect for excellent research, an understanding of support for basic research, for long—term training of PhD students and understanding that good research also comes with time, good working conditions, a sense of community joining forces and reduced administrative burden, respect for junior scientists.”
