The teams from RESIST and the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) in Glasgow plan to use their complementary strengths to conduct joint research in the field of infectious diseases and provide an excellent training environment. With this goal in mind, they have created the new scientific partnership “Hannover-Glasgow Infection Strategy” HAGIS.
A new HAGIS seminar was launched as part of HAGIS. At this online event, after presenting their work, the speakers also take about half an hour to talk to the students as well as (post-) doctoral students and all other members of the audience.
The next seminar will take place on
9 February 2022 from 2 to 3 pm (German time)
- PROF. DAVID BHELLA, Center for Virus Research, Glasgow:
“Structural biology of respiratory syncytial virus”
- PROF. BEATE SODEIK, RESIST Research Unit A and D, Institute of Virology, MHH:
“Navigating a course through the host cell – the world according to a herpesvirus capsid”
Do you have any questions or suggestions regarding the RESIST seminar series? If so, please contact us.
HAGIS is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture. An essential part of the partnership will be the exchange of PhD students. For this reason, projects have been and are being sought in which students can participate in research for a few months in the other partner country and institute; in some cases, cooperations already exist. RESIST researchers who would like to host PhD students from Glasgow or send PhD students to Glasgow are welcome to contact the RESIST office: RESIST@mh-hannover.de.
To further develop the partnership, exchange visits and a joint symposium are planned for 2022. A joint DFG proposal for an international research training group is then planned for mid-2023, to start at the beginning of 2024.
