About Us

The Scottish Microscopy Society, formerly the Scottish Microscopy Group, was established in 1968 by a group of electron microscopists, has grown to now 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.

As a Society, our main objectives are:

Promote microscopy research and facilities in Scotland

Inform on new technologies and funding prospects

Connect microscopy researchers and developers

Inspire collaboration across disciplines and institutions
