Explore hundreds of resources complied by us from within the Society as well as the wider microscopy, cytometry and imaging worlds.

Our directory includes:

  • Online Microscopy Talks: Connect, learn and stay up to date - A list of useful courses, webinars, lectures and other online resources which we hope will be of interest to anyone looking for ways to stay busy and motivated.
  • Resources for School Children - Here are some useful links that we have gathered together from the many online resources for children and young people to utilise whilst they are learning at home.
  • Microscopy Gender Equality Resource - In collaboration with Sian Culley at University College London, this resource has been created to showcase and highlight female microscopists around the world and the specific areas of microscopy they specialise in to assist scientific and conference organisers in selecting excellent speakers for microscopy events and maintaining a positive gender balance.
  • Facilities Database - Developed closely with the BioImagingUK consortium and a facilities list previously hosted by the University of York. This is the 'go to' resource to access Imaging Facilities both UK and worldwide.
