1st Scottish Microscopy Group and Microscopy Society of Ireland Symposium, 2014
The very first joint meeting between the SMG and the MSI was held on the 27th and 28th of November 2014 at the Glasgow Science Centre. The event was a huge success with a fantastic turn out from researchers from across Scotland, Ireland and further afield.
The meeting included a public outreach event run by Dr David Bhella and a packed-full exhibition from a wide range of suppliers. Over the two days we had talks from some fantastic researchers from across the UK as well as selected oral presentations and posters from students applying microscopy to a range of disciplines. To celebrate the coming together of our Societies the conference included a dinner and Ceilidh at Oran Mor in Glasgow's West End.
After a great conference we hope to join with the MSi again in the future, thanks again to everyone involved in making this event, in particular Dr Miep Helfrich and Professor Fiona Lyng.
