Prof Fritz Hahne was bid a fond farewell by students, alumni and colleagues at a special lunch held at AIMS today. Fritz has led AIMS in the position of Director, since its inception in 2003.
He was instrumental in the Institute’s establishment and has overseen the successful graduation of 252 students from the Postgraduate Diploma Programme. A further 54 students are expected to complete at the end of this academic year. Fritz’s deep affection for the students and his commitment to the development of young African scientists was recognised by all present at the special gathering.
