Annual Meeting of the German Center for Infection Research
The Annual Meeting of the German Center for Infection Research (DZIF) will take place November 24–26 in Cologne, Germany.
Ebola and Zika viruses, dangerous hospital pathogens and extensively resistant tuberculosis bacteria have recently drastically demonstrated the kind of global challenges with which infection research has repeatedly been confronted.
The German Center for Infection Research (DZIF), founded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research, has been tackling these challenges since 2012 and has compiled a program for the 2016 Annual Meeting that does justice to the various topics of research.
All nine DZIF research fields (TTUs) will present their current findings and research highlights at individual sessions. For the first time, Academy scholarship holders will give talks to close each session. The DZIF Academy’s declared goal is to educate and train the next generation of infection researchers and to continuously expand its program. Besides this, the DZIF infrastructures that benefit all the research fields will be presented at one of the forums. As in previous years, an extensive poster exhibition will accompany the Annual Meeting’s program and the BMBF is looking forward to receiving interesting abstracts from participants.
