Pre-Christmas get-together on 16th December!

Dear FOTY members,
Join us in the 6th floor coffee room on Wednesday the 16th at 16 o’clock for some relaxed pre-christmas drinks! FOTY will bring wine (We still have quite some left after the 60th anniversary party, and we need to get rid of it!), soft drinks and some snacks. Just bring yourself and your best holiday spirit!

The 6th floor door will probably be locked, so ring the doorbell and we’ll let you in.

Welcome all!

FOTY has a new logo!

As a result of the logo competition organized at FOTY’s 60-year celebration, FOTY now has a brand new logo designed by PhD student Feng Deng. The logo is modern and fresh but still simple, of course with a pharmaceutical twist – check out below how it looks!

Congratulations Feng!
