The MBA News is a bi-annual publication compiled by Ms Maggie Thomas and edited by Matt Frost. A much-appreciated members benefit, the newsletter reflects the breadth of interests of the MBA membership and highlights particular discoveries of the MBA research programme as well as the activities of the education team. It keeps members up-to-date with the various workshops which take place at the Association, gives details of significant scientific meetings held around the globe, and the launch of new projects. The MBA News also invites scientists from other research organizations to give an insight into their work as well as inviting members to contribute articles which they feel may be of interest to fellow members. The MBA News alerts members to information about past and present MBA scientists and staff. It also serves as an introduction to the research and activities of the Association for new student members joining the MBA during their studies in the Resource Centre.
