San Francisco Microscopical Society Membership

The San Francisco Microscopical Society (SFMS) is a non-profit educational institution devoted to the teaching of microscopy. It offers meetings where members can share their experiences and techniques. Public programs are held in September through May. The programs cover a wide range of topics within the various fields of investigation in which microscopes are used. Active training programs in the use of the microscope are presented by members. Guests are always welcome at the public meetings. Society members include active microscopists who use these instruments in their employment and amateurs who work with microscopes for their own diversion and pleasure. All age groups are invited to participate.
