The MSI Research Informatics Support Systems (RISS) program is hosting a Meet and Greet on March 22, 2012. The event will take place on the fourth floor of Walter Library, 1:00-3:00. Members of the University research community are invited to meet the RISS staff and learn about MSI's informatics resources. Light refreshments will be served.

MSI will host a Research Exhibition on April 13, 2012. Visitors will be able to talk to MSI researchers and see posters of their work. Light refreshments will be served. Information can be found on the event website.

MSI regrets to announce that the 2012 REU program was not funded, and therefore we have had to cancel it. We hope to be able to hold a program in Summer 2013. We will post information on our website in Fall 2012.
