MRI Doctors' Club

MRI Dr's club gathers together doctors, who have graduated from the laboratory during its existence. The purpose of the club may be summarised as:

  • Meeting the old friends once working with the Institute
  • Exchange of information between the participants
  • Support of graduate students at MRI

    The club gathers together once a year. The chairman of the club is presently Dr. Antti Pietiläinen (Nokia) and the secretary is Dr. Petri Kärhä (Aalto). Minutes of previous meetings: Nov 05 Sep 06 Jun 07 Apr 08 Feb 09 Sep 09 Jun 10 2011 2012 Jan 14 Mar 15 Jun 16 Mar 17
