Go here to place an order. The backpacks are available in large and medium, and a variety of colours. You save about 30% of the recommended retail price.

Once you’ve placed your order, which is binding, you will recieve an e-invoice to the e-mail provided in the form. This e-invoice has to be paid for you to be able to pick up your backpack from the Student Union Office at Villan. Estimated delivery to Villan is 2 weeks after the last order has been placed.

Both the form and e-invoice are in Swedish and if you need help with your order or with the payment, please contact our offices.

CURIOUS ABOUT DISASTER MEDICINE & BIOTERRORISM?


  27-11-2018

Then you are welcome to join our presentation this Wednesday!
When: November 28th at 12.15-12.45
Where: Outside of the Medical Library at the Umeå University Hospital.

Vegetarian/Vegan lunch sandwiches, tea and coffee will be served to the first 50 people.

Topic:
Bioterrorism is a specifically frightening form of terrorism, where use of hazardous materials, especially microorganisms, poses a very different type of threat compared to other forms.

Bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms can be found everywhere. They can be spread easily and can’t be seen with the naked eye. In addition, some of them are excellent killers. Does this not make the perfect recipe for disaster?
