MPGI Events

Institute events have been established to encourage interactions among scientists in different departments and disciplines internal and external to the University. These events take on a variety of formats to encourage both formal and semi-formal interactions. Our regular events include the Fall Symposium, the Annual Retreat, Science on the Spot, the Distinguished Scientists Lectureship Series and Cargill Coffee.
