Umeå Centre for Microbial Research (UCMR) is a national Centre of Excellence promoting interdisciplinary research on molecular and translational microbial research. UCMR is located at Umeå University, the flagship university in north Sweden. It is an interdisciplinary consortium of academic research groups with outstanding track records in the fields of microbial pathogenesis, molecular and cell biology, chemistry, clinical microbiology, structural biology, immunology, epidemiology, microbial ecology, physics, mathematics and data-driven science that have joined forces to establish a world-leading and sustainable science environment promoting cutting-edge microbial research at Umeå University.
UCMR Distinguished Guests Seminar Series (DGSS) aim to invite outstanding international scientists to present their excellent work. The seminars are open to all researchers in Sweden. The mission of this programme is to inspire researchers in Umeå and to connect the research environment of UCMR to the world.
