In 2009 the first group leaders established their research at the Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden, MIMS. We celebrate this with a symposium at which international speakers discuss new insights into the biology of infectious diseases and their control.

We also look back at 10 years of research at MIMS under the leadership of professor Bernt Eric Uhlin, and several newly recruited group leaders will present their research plans. Welcome!
