Welcome to the 13th UCMR Day, January 20th 2022


We cordially invite you to attend the UCMR Day 2022, which will be held on campus at Aula Nordica!

Scientists and staff members within UCMR (Umeå Centre for Microbial Research) research groups, collaboration partners and researchers with an interest in microbial research and/or infection biology are invited to a day of inspiring research presentations and an excellent opportunity for networking and initiation of multidisciplinary collaborations.

This one-day conference includes two international keynotes, scientific presentations by UCMR affiliated researchers, selected abstract talks and poster elevator pitches as well as physical poster presentations. We are all longing to meet in person again, so the program includes several possibilities for UCMR scientists to interact and network with each other.

The day will be held at Aula Nordica and you will be ask to provide a screenshot of your Covid pass, as we are expecting more than 100 participants onsite. There will also be the possibility to follow the programme online.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is December 12th!

With kind regards // UCMR day 2022 organization committee
