The Royal Microscopical Society

at the forefront of microscopy since 1839

The RMS is dedicated to furthering the science of microscopy.  It does that through a wide range of activities that support research and education in microscopy, and through enabling microscopists to make advances and developments in microscopy, cytometry and imaging.  

Activities of the society include dissemination of research and news through publications and communication, the organisation of conference, training and networking events, the provision of outreach resources including resources for schools, and through supporting careers through awards and bursaries.

We are a truly international society, and welcome members from all countries and backgrounds that are interested in microscopes and the science of microscopy.

The RMS is a not for profit organisation and is a registered Charity, under the Charities Act 2011.
