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.

@SULSAtweets @scotmicro That is exciting! Of course today is also exciting because today people can come to our virtual career event and hear about science communication as a career...(zero shame for this plug!)

Today is an exciting day (not only because nurseries are open!) but because we are launching two things focused around #microscopy, something close to my heart.
