IBA is planning a course on Principles of Infection Biology


Time and place: Week 22 (May 31 to June 4th). Online

Registration: Not open yet.

Who is it for:  IBA PhD students. Participation in the course is mandatory for all IBA PhD students who are currently within the first 18 months since signing their PhD contract (i.e. starting September 1st 2019 or later). Other students (including research track students/”forskjerlinjestudenter”) are welcome to take the course contingent on course enrollment limits.

Course description: The course will provide a thorough introduction to the molecular and cellular bases of host – microbe interactions. It will focus on microbial model systems that illustrate mechanisms of pathogenesis with an emphasis on state of the art experimental approaches and methodologies. This course will run each year in early summer over one week.

Organisation: The course will be a combination of lectures and discussions.

ECTS: You will receive a certificate stating recommended ECTS for this course (not yet determined).  You can apply to your home institution for getting the course accepted as ECTS in your degree. Your home institution decides if and how many credits you will get.
