The Royal Microscopical Society (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.  

The activities of the society include the dissemination of research and news through publications and communication. Most notably, this is achieved via the the Journal of Microscopy - a peer-reviewed, international and interdisciplinary forum for publication, discussion, and education.

The society also organises conferences, training and networking events, undertakes the provision of outreach resources including resources for schools, and supports 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.
