Welcome to the 7th National Infection Biology meeting, NIB 2017, which will take place at the Conference Centre  Djurönäset in the archipelago outside of Stockholm.

The aim of the meeting is to gather experimental researchers, physicians and epidemiologists interested in molecular and clinical microbiology, immunology and host-pathogen interactions. Invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts will present their research spanning bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, host-pathogen interactions, host defence etc. There will also be a poster session 17 October.

NIB 2017 is co-organized by MIMS (The Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden), the National Network for Infection Biology (NIB) and the National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA).

All activities including accommodation 16-18 October are free of charge for NDPIA members (PhD students or postdocs at Swedish universities focusing on infections and/or antibiotics).

As soon as possible a preliminary programme will be published and registration will open.

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.”
