The Scottish Microscopy Group was established in 1968 by a group of electron microscopists.



SMG need your help

We are working on ways in which we can improve our annual symposia and look at how we can better serve the microscopy community in other ways.

It would be great if you, as a user of the SMG website, could spare a few minutes to fill out this brief survey, which will make a big difference to the development of our society.

Thanks from all the SMG team

Our Remit


We aim to bring microscopists from all disciplines together to share techniques, ideas and new technologies.

We run an annual symposium encompassing all aspects of microscopy and an associated image competition.
