The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) is at the forefront of new ideas and developments in microscopes and their usage.
The RMS is the only truly international microscopical society, drawing distinguished members from all over the world. It also serves the needs of its company members who represent all the major manufacturers and suppliers of microscopes and related equipment and services.
In addition to this, the Society is pursuing an initiative to encourage young microscope users who may go on to influence microscopy in years to come.
The Society is dedicated to advancing science, developing careers and supporting wider understanding of science and microscopy through its Science and Society activities.
In support of the above, it publishes the highest rated journal in microscopy, The Journal of Microscopy, and microscopy handbooks, as well as helping young scientists through bursaries.
