Recent Events

MSI/SMS Joint Symposium - NUIG 2022

As we slowly leave the restrictions of the last few years behind, we are excited to be able to invite all those with an interest in microscopy to come together in Galway for our meeting - jointly run by the Microscopy Society of Ireland (MSI) and the Scottish Microscopy Society (SMS).

We encourage Postgraduate researchers – who may not have had a chance to attend a conference before - to attend and present their research, they will find a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Remembering Dr David C. Cottel

We regret to inform our members of the recent passing of Dr David C. Cottell, one of the founding members of the MSI. David was the leading force in MSI from the earliest days and was instrumental in securing the very successful EUREM'96 conference.

David was a huge influence on microscopy in Ireland, ever helpful to young and emerging microscopists, both in his laboratory (EM lab, UCD) and across the island of Ireland. No request for help went unanswered. His expertise was greatly valued in the diagnostic hospital community, and many patients benefited from his skilled observations on biopsies. He will be greatly missed in the microscopy community.

Irish Microscopy and Imaging Community Townhall

The next meeting of the Irish Microscopy and Imaging Community will take place on Thursday 20th January from 3 – 5pm (Irish Standard Time). Join us to watch presentations from four Irish imaging facilities in both Life and Physical Sciences. Link to meeting will be issued either by direct request to Kerry.thompson@nuigalway.ie or via the community mailing list.

Rory Comerford Lecture - Prof. Maria McNamara

This year's Rory Comerford memorial lecture will be given by Prof. Maria McNamara (University College Cork). The lecture, entitled “Go Big or Go Home: Making and Using an Optical Mesoscope for Biomedical Imaging”, was held in University College Dublin.
