Dear members,

we celebrate this year the 150th birthday of Maria Skłodowska-Curie with a series of Poland-wide events organized by the Polish Chemical Society and the Maria Skłodowska-Curie Muzeum in Warsaw.

The crowning event of this series is the Medicine-Scientia-Cultura conference in Warsaw (see separate event), followed by the official conference gala. While participation in the MSC2017 conference is open to all members of the public (for a small registration fee), the gala is an invitation-only exclusive event, to which you may have access through membership in MCAA.

The MCAA Polish Chapter cordially invites you to participate in the Birthday Gala (9.11), which will be attended by Maria's grandchildren.

Participation is free, but possible only through an invitation extended to MCAA members - please contact Maria Górna (by email or a message on this website) by Nov 4th if you wish to attend.
