We are overjoyed that you are joining us in Muizenberg. You have a bright future ahead of you, and I encourage you to make use of every opportunity that our institute offers you. It is said that the human mind, once stretched, can never regain its original dimensions. You are going to make friends from many countries, and your horizons are going to be stretched! My hope for you is that your sojourn at AIMS will be an enriching time, and that the technical skills you acquire and the friendships you form will last you a lifetime.
Dr Ulrich Paquet, Director AIMS South Africa
