Events

Our event calendar is packed full of events spanning all branches of microscopy and cytometry in both the life and physical sciences.

As a Society we run a mixture of virtual and in-person training courses, networking meetings and larger international conferences and exhibitions, suitable for students and professionals to attend. To broaden our reach even further, we sponsor a number of events run by other Societies, providing them with essential funding to run meetings specific to their interest group.

We also host events on behalf of Societies who are unable to provide the administration and organisation time needed to run successful events. This allows our members to benefit from a much wider range of events covering an array of topics and allows for interdisciplinary networking.

We are continuously assessing our calendar of RMS led events to ensure we are meeting the needs of the community. If you are interested in becoming a Scientific Organiser for an RMS training course or conference, and would like further information, please contact Victoria Masters

Imaging ONEWORLD covers topics including sample preparation, labelling strategies, experimental workflows, and ‘how-to’ image and analyse. The webinars examine inspiring new scientific ideas and facilitate collaborations, with speakers also available for questions and answers. The organisers, core facility staff from the University of Cambridge, Gurdon Institute, MRC-LMB and the ICR/Royal Marsden Trust are also able to continue the discussion and provide advice on your imaging projects.

The Microscopy Lecture Series initiative has been developed as an international networking platform for expanding knowledge, sharing new developments, and exchanging best practices related to microscopy.  Our first joint project is a virtual lecture series featuring microscopists who have defined the field of modern microscopy by their ground-breaking work.  These virtual lectures mean we can engage a worldwide audience.  

The Microscience Microcopy Congress (mmc) Series are the flagship events of the Royal Microscopical Society and they takes place in Manchester every two years. The mmc series encompasses a scientific conference of six parallel sessions of both invited and submitted talks alongside plenary lectures from world-leading names in microscopy and cytometry. The conference is accompanied by poster sessions hosted in the main exhibition hall which is also home to 100+ companies showcasing the very best of what is currently available in microscopy, cytometry and imaging. 

With our busy calendar of events, there are plenty of opportunities to sponsor and exhibit at our events. From SPM to Flow Cytometry, we cater for a wide range of microscopy techniques covering both life and physical sciences. So, no matter which field you would like to attract, we'll have a suitable event for you.
