The National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA)
NDPIA offers courses, workshops and networking opportunities for PhD students and postdocs working in infections and/or antibiotics at Swedish universities
The National Doctoral Programme in Infections and Antibiotics (NDPIA) is open for PhD students and post docs active in research projects in the area of infection biology and antibiotics. Registered participants have access to a valuable national network with the opportunity to participate in courses and workshops suitable for their studies. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend national and local network activities featuring cutting-edge speakers and the opportunity to present/discuss their research projects and establish valuable collaborations and networks. Programme activities constitute a scientific “smorgasbord” provided by leading researchers at different universities. No activities are mandatory and programme participants will receive co-funding of travel and accommodation costs for participating in programme activities at other universities. At the web site www.ndpia.se there is additional information about NDPIA, how to register, organization and contact persons together with information on future courses, workshops etc.
NDPIA is funded by the Swedish Research Council, connects Swedish research environments in infection biology and infectious diseases and covers basic as well as clinical research. The aim of the programme is to strengthen the national recruitment base and quality for promoting research on infectious diseases and other risks to health. A particularly important objective of the program is to strengthen domestic and international networking in the subject area. NDPIA has collaborating partners in Norway and Germany, supports participation in relevant courses organized by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The programme is coordinated via the Laboratory for Molecular Medicine Sweden (MIMS) at Umeå University and collaborating Swedish universities are: Karolinska Institutet, Linköping University, Lund University, the University of Gothenburg and Uppsala University.
