| San Francisco Microscopical Society
The society was developed as a
non-profit educational institution devoted to
the teaching of microscopy and as a meeting place where members could
their experiences and techniques.
Public programs are held
bi-monthly at sites around the San Francisco Bay Area,
traditionally on the second Wednesday of the month, September through May
occasionally on Saturday when a longer program is scheduled. Programs
at these meetings cover a wide range of topics within the various
investigation in which the microscope is used. Active training programs
use of the microscope are presented by members and invited speakers
from the SF
Bay Area and beyond as opportunities arise. Visitors
are always welcome at
the public meetings.
The society consists of active
microscopists who use the microscope in their
employment, and amateurs who work with the microscope for their own
pleasure. The members' interests cover biology and medical studies,
diatoms, chemical microscopy, forensic science, and other areas. We are
interested in expanding our membership to establish a broader base of
communications amongst the scientific and educational community. Our
is to become a focal point for microscopists throughout the Bay Area.
