Jürgen Wehland Symposium NoRDI VII


and the Jürgen Wehland Award Ceremony

NoRDI VII will focus on the topic „Infection: Persistence, Resistance and Therapy“. In this regard, key mechanisms of persistence and resistance employed by infectious agents will be discussed, and innovative therapies to tackle them will be presented. Embedded in the scientific programme is the Jürgen Wehland Prize ceremony for young scientists in infection research. The ceremony takes place for the fourth time in honourable remembrance of the former Scientific Director of the HZI.

The “North Regio Day on Infection” (NoRDI) was established in 2010 as a central event and meeting place for scientists from universities and research institutions 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 in the field.
