RMS Beginners' Competition

We are excited to announce the return of the RMS Beginners' Competition an exciting opportunity for early career scientists to present at a scientific meeting.


This award is designed to offer early career researchers an opportunity to present their work before an audience at a scientific meeting. Entrants will be asked to give a short oral presentation (10 minutes) at the 2017 Society of Electron Microscope Technology (SEMT) Meeting on 6 December at the Natural History Museum in London.

These diverse and dynamic meetings are an ideal opportunity for those relatively new to microscopy to present and network with active researchers working in electron microscopy field. The competition winner will be announced at the meeting and will receive a cash prize. Previous winning presentations have ranged from “Multiple Length-Scale Imaging of Biomimetric Hierarchical Mineralized Materials” to “Small gold nanoparticles: potential carriers of therapeutics across the blood-brain barrier”.

To apply to give a short oral presentation, please send a brief abstract to Dr Alex Ball, Secretary of the SEMT.
