Welcome to the 12th UCMR Day, January 14th 2021


The COVID-19 pandemic holds the world in an iron grip, illustrating the importance of conducting fundamental, clinical and applied science in infection biology.

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.

UCMR day 2021 will be a digital conference, with talks from selected abstracts and invited speakers,
and a virtual poster viewing and discussion session.

With kind regards // UCMR day 2021 organization committee
