Jürgen Wehland Symposium - NoRDI IV

and the Jürgen Wehland Award Ceremony

No RDI IV 2013

The innate immune response to bacterial, viral and parasitic infections is the main topic of this year's NoRDI meeting entitled “INNATE IMMUNITY TO INFECTIONS”.
Embedded in the scientific programme is the Jürgen Wehland Award ceremony for young scientists in infection research. The ceremony takes place for the third time in honourable remembrance of the former Scientific Director of the HZI.

  • Overview

    The “North-Regio-Day on Infection” (NoRDI) was established in 2010 as a central event and meeting place for scientists from universities and research institutes of the northern region of Germany to exchange research results and recent technical developments as well as to discuss important questions and future tasks in different fields of infection biology. The meeting is of great interest for junior scientists wishing an update on the state-of-the-art knowledge in the field of bacterial and viral pathogenesis. It will give them the chance to discuss their research results with established scientists of the field.

    A host of internationally renowned speakers has kindly accepted our invitations, and we are looking forward to an exceptionally strong scientific programme and numerous opportunities for discussion.

    NoRDI is coordinated by the Technische Universität Braunschweig, the Robert Koch Institute, the TWINCORE, the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, the Hannover Medical School and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research.

    We would like to invite you to attend the meeting and contribute to the scientific exchange with the speakers and with audience members.
