This programme is funded by the Ministry of Education and Research, grant number 01PL11019.

The University of Würzburg is listed amongst the top four German universities in the Life Sciences and has a strong focus on infection biology research (source: funding ranking DFG).

The Faculty of Biology of the University of Würzburg is organizing an annual international Summer School in infection biology. Speakers and scientific coordinators are Prof. Dr. Dandekar, Prof. Dr. Brehm, Dr. Kramer and Dr. Fraunholz.

Our goal is to offer national and international BSc, MSc, and PhD students the opportunity to meet, learn and discuss, in order to develop and apply cutting edge insights and techniques and view these from a bioinformatics as well as a microbiology perspective.

Important new methods in drug screening, microscopy and system biology will be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will gain a deeper insight into important models of infectious  diseases and will benefit from small group discussions and subsequent application of newly acquired knowledge and techniques.
