pdf Programme flyer

Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) is an interdisciplinary research centre established by a consortium of scientists representing medical & molecular microbiology, molecular & structural biology, chemistry & physics, and is devoted to top quality research and novel applications in the fields of microbial pathogenesis. The idea with this mini symposium to highlight the research conducted by post-docs within UCMR research groups and promote collaboration within UCMR but hopefully also lead to new collaborations both within UCMR as well with other research groups.
