The Royal Microscopical Society is dedicated to the promotion and development of microscopy and imaging. It is a vibrant society offering its members opportunities to network and to play an active part in the world of science. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, including undergraduates, research students, users of microscopy in industry and academia, microscopy manufacturers and suppliers, and research leaders in their various fields within the biological and physical sciences. They enjoy a range of benefits, not least being part of an international, multidisciplinary group of active microscopists.

I joined the RMS as a PhD student and have been very involved in the Society and its activities throughout my career. It has given me amazing opportunities for networking, training and professional development including, as a member of the Life Sciences Committee, organisation and attendance at brilliant courses, meetings and conferences. These have been both great experiences in themselves where I have met inspirational world leaders in microscopy and made productive collaborations, but have also been very important for achieving my own career goals. My involvement with the Society and its activities were an important part of my recent successful application for promotion.
