Supporting Gender Equality in Microscopy

The RMS is dedicated to supporting equality in the field of microscopy, imaging and cytometry specifically for speakers invited to attend events internationally.

In collaboration with Sian Culley at King's College London, this resource was created to showcase and highlight women microscopists around the world and the specific areas of microscopy they specialise in. We hope this resource will assist scientific and conference organisers in selecting excellent speakers for microscopy events and maintaining a positive, inclusive, gender balance.

You can navigate around the map and zoom into the geographical area you are interested in, or alternatively open the map in a new browser and search for specific people or areas of expertise.
