Scottish microscopy society

The Scottish Microscopy Society, formerly the Scottish Microscopy Group, was established in 1968 by a group of electron microscopists, but has grown to incorporate the whole spectrum of microscopy with committee members from institutions across disciplines and across Scotland. We aim to bring microscopists from all disciplines together to share techniques, ideas and new technologies.
