STINT Workshops

 

STINT Workshop 2011 - Umeå, Sweden

The first workshop was held in Umeå in the north of Sweden and included participants from the three research groups as well as guests from Umeå University and National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Japan (a total of 12 persons). The photo shows some of the participants posing in front of the statue of the northern lights on the Umeå University campus. During the first meeting, time was spent to learn more about and discuss each other’s research areas and define scientific tasks for the first year. We also received valuable input from our guests, strengthening and broadening the scientific discussions. Download the program here.

STINT Workshop 2012 - Recife, Brazil

The second workshop was held in Recife in Northeastern Brazil and included participants from the three research groups as well as guests from Umeå University in Sweden and Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil (a total of 15 persons). The photo shows the participants inside the conference room at a coffee break and posing outside of the conference venue. During the second meeting we discussed results from the passing year, expanded and redefined tasks for next year and discussed further scientific collaborations. During this second meeting our guests also contributed greatly with their different areas of expertise and this created broad and in-depth discussions of all the research presented.

STINT Workshop 2013 - London, England

The third workshop took place in the Wellcome Trust Conference Center in Hinxton, UK. It included participants from the three research groups as well as invited guests from Queen Mary University of London, Imperial’s College in the UK, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil and Univeristy of Clemson in the US (a total of 18 persons). Our group photo was taken at the Conference Center and at Trinity College in Cambridge during our one day visit to the city. As in the previous workshop, we discussed the progresses since the last meeting and planned tasks for next year. Our guests have contributed greatly in the field natural products, computational and experimental biophysics and tissue engineering through focused discussions of all the research presented.

STINT Workshop 2015 - Umeå, Sweden

The fourth workshop took place in Strömbäcks Folkhögskola near Umeå in Sweden. Participants from the three research groups were present together with invited guests from the University of Umeå, and Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil (a total of 15 persons). Our group photo was taken at the Conference Room and during the outdoors activity afternoon. The presentations covered several topics relevant to bacterial adhesion: from experiments to computational simulations, from microbiology to polymer science and more. We discussed last year progresses and planned new directions for our collaboration. As usual, our guests have been essential in bringing new perspectives and solutions during the scientific discussions and planning of future research directions. Download the program here.

STINT Workshop 2017 - London, England

The fifth workshop took place in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Olinda near Recife, Brazil. As in the previous meeting, participants from the three research groups were present together with invited guests from the University of Umeå, Sweden, University of Oslo, Norway, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz, Brazil, University of São Paulo, Brazil, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil (a total of 20 persons). The presentations covered several topics relevant to bacterial adhesion: from experiments to computational simulations, from microbiology to polymer science and more. We discussed last year progresses, new collaborations, and begun looking for new funding opportunities to pursue our joint research. Towards that, our guests have been essential in bringing new perspectives and solutions during the scientific discussions and planning of future research directions. Download the program here.
