Friends & alumni program

Body

We want our friends and alumni to maintain a long-term relationship with each other and with our faculty. To this end we organise regular lectures and events. These lectures present concepts in an easy to understand manner appealing to broad scientific interests, and are a great opportunity to meet some of our MSI academics in an informal environment over drinks and nibbles.

Attendance at these special lectures is by invitation only, so please register as a friend of MSI to receive your invitation to future events.
